Alexandrov Ensemble: Suliko (1960s)

The Alexandrov Ensemble sings "Suliko", conducted by Boris Alexandrovich Alexandrov, recorded 1950s or 1960s. This is a Georgian traditional song. The photo is of the Ensemble marching through London, probably in 1956 (or possibly 1963) to their concert venue. The 1963 venue was the Albert Hall; the 1956 venue was elsewhere. That is Nelson's column (Trafalgar Square) in the background - and of course an old Routemaster bus. ------------------------------------------ FROM WIKIPEDIA: Suliko (Georgian: სულიკო) is a Georgian female and male name meaning 'soul'. It is also the title of a love poem written in 1895 by Akaki Tsereteli, which became widely known throughout the Soviet Union as a song performed with music composed by Varenka Tsereteli. In that form it was often performed on radio during Joseph Stalin's rule, reputedly because it was the emperor's favorite. It was translated to and performed in multiple languages including Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, English and German. ------------------------------------------ Я могилу милой искал, Но ее найти нелегко, Долго я томился и страдал; Где же ты моя Сулико! Розу на пути встретил я, В поисках уйдя далеко, Роза, пожалей, услышь меня, Нет ли у тебя Сулико? Среди роз душистых, в тени, Песню соловей звонко пел, Я у соловья тогда спросил Сулико не ты ли пригрел? Соловей вдруг замолчал, Розу тронул клювом легко, Ты нашел, что ищешь, - он сказал Вечным сном здесь спит Сулико Роза, наклонившись слегка, Свой бутон раскрыв широко, Тихо прошеплала мне тогда Не найти тебе Сулико. --------------------------------------------- I was looking for my sweetheart's grave, And longing was tearing my heart. Without love my heart felt heavy, I cried to the night - "Where are you, my Suliko? " Alone among the thorns of the bush A lone rose was blooming My heart was beating hard, I had to ask it: "Where have you hidden Suliko?". A nightingale hid with bated breath In the branches of the rose thorn Gently, then, I asked him if he was the one, if he had any news of Suliko The Nightingale lifted his head high And sang a loud clear song to the stars His eyes held a gleam, and he cocked his head As if to tell me "Yes, yes, I know Suliko!" Suddenly the nightingale fell silent And softly touched the rose with the beak "You have found what you are looking for," he said, In an eternal sleep Suliko is resting here." ----------------------------------------

My thoughts and tears are with the Russian people's deep sorrow for the great loss of such a powerful and beloved band. I will miss you all. Rest in peace dear friends!

Ach würden doch alle Soldaten nur noch singen, statt zu schießen, es wäre der Kriegstreiberei endlich ein Ende gesetzt... Sie könnten dann gemeinsam singen, sich kennen- und schätzenlernen und die Welt wäre eine bessere.

Ich bin ja kein Militarist, wirklich nicht, aber wenn ein russischer Soldatenchor singt, lasse ich alles stehen und liegen. Erst recht für diesen hier. Und erinnere mich noch, wie ich beim ersten Mal bei der Melodie "Suliko" dahinschmolz - es war ein stimmgewaltiger Soldatenchor in Smolensk mit einem wahrhaft umwerfenden, engelähnlichen Tenorsolisten - , bis der Text bei mir ankam.

Я могилу милой искал, Это было мне нелегко. Часто останавливался и вздыхал. Где же ты, моя Сулико? Часто останавливался и вздыхал. Где же ты, моя Сулико? Увидал я розу в саду, Что лила, как слезы, росу. Ты ль так расцвела далеко, Милая моя Сулико? Ты ль так расцвела далеко, Милая моя Сулико? Над любимой розой своей Прятался в ветвях соловей. Я спросил, вздохнув глубоко: "Где же ты, моя Сулико?" Я спросил, вздохнув глубоко: "Где же ты, моя Сулико?" Я могилу милой искал, Это было мне нелегко. Часто останавливался и вздыхал. Где же ты, моя Сулико? Часто останавливался и вздыхал. Где же ты, моя Сулико?

This is so beautiful. They are photographed marching up Whitehall in London, where they laid a wreath at the Cenotaph in memory of their British allies and comrades who gave their lives in a mutual cause.

Ich liebe die russische Sprache und Gesänge. Nicht in meiner Muttersprache "Deutsch" war ich so perfekt wie in Russisch und bekam dafür die Herdermedaille vor 55 Jahren. Möge es an meinen slawischen Wurzeln liegen???

Этот хоровой вариант песни исполнить труднее, чем в более быстром темпе - значит, и голосов нужно больше.

I love this song! My Mom used to play this when I was little, among other Russian songs(Now I know this is Georgian not Russian though). I'm also from China, I guess our older generation felt a connection to that culture...BTW the lyrics are in Georgian right?

NO, for an album I bought 10 yrs ago when I was in high school. Alexandrov Ensemble: Moon Light over Moscow.

Who told you unavailable? some insane leaders block it doesn't mean it is illegal. someday they tell you its OK then block disappeared. We don't know who make this policy regarding specific website. That's a basic difference between Western and Chinese, while they think they have free media, even if the media brainwash them sometimes. In China, everyone be skeptical on this issue, then compare different news resource. Western people say we know nothing. Actually western people know nothing...

But I don't think this version corresponding to the Suliko original Georgian lyric. Seems they are different.... in the Album Moonlight Over Moscow.

Thank you

No, just for I bought this CD in my high school time.
