I'd like to hear Colas Bregnon the opera (! Grin ) too! I seem to recall the reviews,I saw, of the cd set were quite positive!
I think it is possible that his opera 'The Taras Family' (hope I've got the title right!) was recorded in Soviet days. I'm sure I saw it in my old Russian Record Company/Collets catalogue lists,back in the days of Melodiya Lps. (How I used to relish perusing those,often,bulky mailing lists!) Of course,it may have been just an Overture or something,it's so long ago.If it was recorded,those Lps must still exist,presumably in the collections of some uk enthusiasts,too?  I also remember seeing a Gliere opera listed too. 'Shakh-Senem,I think!).
I wonder how old the recordings are,though? Having said that,the singing on those old soviet sets was usually very good,often superb & you can't beat that old authentic soviet era brass!  Smiley Mind you,they always got rubbished in the West! Unfairly,I thought! At any rate,these are the sort of obscure opera recordings I wish I'd bought now. But as a teenager,having only so much pocket money,I had to make some VERY tough decisions,believe me!! Sad Sad
