Knowledge of just what recordings of classical music have been issued in the Soviet Union has been very limited to date, since only a small number of such recordings have been licensed for production and sale by West European and American companies. . . . Bennett's discography of all LP recordings issued in Russia since 1951 is thus a valuable research tool for the serious record collector and music library. ChoiceBennett, John R. is the author of 'Melodiya A Soviet Russian L.P. Discography', published 1981 under ISBN 9780313225963 and ISBN 0313225966.
