Kashchei the Immortal, autumn tale - an opera in one Act to a libretto by the composer
1 Days without gleam, sleepless nights
2 I see the maiden of beauty wonderful
3 Goy! You, magician-sluggard!
4 The secret of nature is comprehended
5 White blizzard, snowstorm
6 The night falls, and gently wind lulled
7 The dead of night, there is no road farther
8 Welcome, my guest!
9 On the golden shallop, in the delightful dream
10 In arc bending thick twigs
11 Bai, Bai, Kashchei gray-haired
12 It seems?
13 Stop, my hero
14 Farewell, the favourite Prince
15 End of evil Tsardom
Recorded in 1949 in the Soviet Union
