A documentary about the Don Cossack Choir Serge Jaroff
On November 19th, 2012 record label SLAVA, managed by the Netherlands-Russia Centre at the University of Groningen (The Netherlands) released a documentary about the Don Cossack Choir Serge Jaroff. The documentary contains a historical overview with 33 recordings from the 1960s, accompanied by photographs from the period 1923–1986.
After the Red Army arose as victor in the Russian Civil War, numerous army units that remained loyal to the Czar fled to Turkey. Their number included many Cossacks, including Serge Jaroff. With his regiment he founded the Don Cossack Choir Serge Jaroff near Istanbul in 1921. Led by Jaroff, the choir took part in church services, and starting in 1923 the Cossacks gave concerts as well. Over the years the choir achieved an almost legendary status. With a repertoire of sacred, military and folk music, all sung a cappella, the choir embarked on many international tours. Jaroff led the choir for sixty years, whereupon the famous baritone Michael Minsky took over as conductor. Since 2001 Wanja Hlibka has been heading the choir.
Michael Minsky settled in the Dutch city of Zwolle in the 1970s and married the Dutch Irina Minsky. She has been striving to map and collect the musical heritage of her husband and the Don Cossack Choir. In fulfilling this task she works closely together with the Netherlands-Russia Centre, which releases the music under record label SLAVA, the Russian word for ‘glory’.
Just like SLAVA’s other Russian music releases, the DVD can be ordered at www.nrce.nl/slava for ?17.50. The overall run time is 110 minutes and the commentary is in both English and Russian.
