Russkoye Pole (Russian Fields). Dmitri Khvorostovsky

The landscape art of the great Peredvizhniki painter Ivan Shiskin is joined with a Soviet popular song sung by Dmitri Khvorostovsky. The last image, Morning in the Pine Forest, is considered to be the finest Russian nature/landscape painting of all time. I agree, emphatically.

 

From Vladivostok to Brest, from Kotlas to Odesssa, many peoples, many voices, yet one homeland, one soul.
