Nicolai Ghiaurov’s unmistakable timbre brought him the title “Re dei bassi” – “King of Basses”. In live recordings from two Sunday Concerts by the Münchner Rundfunkorchester he can be heard in key roles from the bass repertoire as well as rarely performed arias by Bizet, Glinka and Rimsky Korsakov.

The program also contains arias from two roles in which Ghiaurov became world-famous: the title role in Boris Godunov and Mephistophèlès in Gounod’s Faust.

- Previously unreleased recordings by Nicolai Ghiaurov

- Documents of the beloved Sunday concerts with the Münchner Rundfunkorchester from the 1960’s under the direction of Georges Prêtre and Alfredo Antonini.
