“Bass-Baritone Vladimir Abramovich Bunchikov was born on 21 November 1902 in Yekaterinoslav. He became a soloist of the Worker’s Opera in Dnepropetrovsk in 1929 and at the Moscow Nemirovicha-Danchenko Musical Theatre 1931. From 1934 he made gramophone recordings with V.Kandelaki's jazz, V.Knushevitsky’s variety orchestra, B.Aleksandrov’s Song Ensemble of All-Union Radio. In 1942 - 1967 he was the soloist of the All-Union Radio. Bunchikov performed many songs in duet with Vladimir Nechaev. The fortunate combination of two voices - Bunchikov’s baritone and Nechaev’s tenor - enriched their vocal palette and strengthened their emotional impact on the audience. The duo performed for over a quarter of the century and produced a number of popular songs. In 1944 Bunchikov was conferred the title of the Honored Artist of Russia.”
