Extra Information The 1961 Soviet score is infamous for its substitution of the anthem "God Save the Tsar" (Bozhe, Tsaria Khrani - A. Lvov) near the end with another quotation -- ironically -- a setting of the tune of the final chorus ("Slav'sja") from Glinka's A Life for the Tsar (known in Soviet times as Ivan Susanin). Tchaikovsky's original appeared in the appendix.
The earliest version of the score to include sections for chorus parts was prepared ca.1960 by the American conductor Igor Buketoff (1915-2001), and remains in copyright.
