The setting for Mikhail Glinka’s A Life for the Tsar is Russia and a Polish camp in 1613. Following the Russian revolution, the Communist regime renamed this intrinsically Russian opera after the main character, Ivan Susanin. The emphasis was then changed from the peasant's life given to save the Tsar for the Russian people, to the idea of Susanin deliverin Russia when threatened with attack from the Polish enemy. The original title and libretto have now been restored. Russian bass, Evgeny Nesterenko magnificently sings the dramatic role of Ivan Susanin, the tragic hero who leads the Polish enemy on a false path in their search for the Tsar, thereby permitting the Tsar's escape. With Marina Mescheriakova, Alexander Lomonosov and the Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.

Blues, Rock‘n’Roll and all that Jazz: a musical autobiography that represents a fascinating cross-section from the glittering career and from the passionate life of producer Siggi Loch - for his 75th birthday. Right at the start of his career, he had the dream of running his own jazz label, and he has now fulfilled that dream. ACT has been voted label of the year four times in a row at the German ECHO awards, and in 2015 alone, its artists and releases garnered eight ECHOs: the label has achieved international renown. However this CD collection is a snapshot of where things are, a provisional taking of stock to mark and to celebrate Siggi Loch's 75th birthday.
