Viktor Semjonovich Kaluzhskij

1925–1978

All that I can find about his career is that he was a soloist at the Bolshoj for a short time, from 1955 to 1959. It's surprising that there is no trace of him otherwise – he sounds like a quite able singer. There are two complete opera recordings with his participation: Rafaehl, where he sings the title role (which is normally given by a mezzosoprano, but exists also in a tenor version); and Skazka o Tsare Saltane/The tale of Tsar Saltan, where he sings a small comprimario part.
