Boris Christoff was born in Plovdiv in Bulgaria in 1914. The country‘s king, King Boris, recognized the uniqueness of Christoff‘s voice and financed the young bass singer‘s studies; just a few years later Christoff himself was crowned – as the reigning king of basses.
This 10CD box covers the entire range of the repertoire with which Boris Christoff took the world by storm; from his first opera role in La Boheme over the important Verdi roles and his devilish portrayal of Mephisto to the major roles in Russian operas; Christoff took part in no less than 600 performances of Boris Godunov.
Christoff‘s services to the songs of Modest Mussorgsky also remain unforgotten and are documented on this compilation – the singer himself declared that Mussorgsky‘s compositions also changed his life. Boris Christoff died in Rome in 1993.
