Serge Jaroff passed away 1985 in his adopted country USA. The right to carry the name Don Cossak Choir he transfered some months before his death to Gastspieldirektion Otto Hofner, today led by Eberhard Bauer. After the death of Serge Jaroff a lot of agents and ensembles grasped at the world famous name Don Cossak and they didn't hesitate to bring Jaroff's name in relationship with their groups. This circumstance led to a complete irritation of the audience. Because of the existance of so many ensembles Otto Hofner could not work for a successful tour for the Don Cossak Choir. Besides, over many years of the ability of the Original Choir was questioned because the quality of these ensembles could not be compared in any way with the world famous Don Cossak Choir Serge Jaroff. It was due to this fact and Serge Jaroff's desire to carry on with the choir that Wanja Hlibka and George Tymczenko, who was also for a long time soloist of the Original Choir, started in 1991 a new beginning with the Don Cossak Soloists. In 2001 after triumphant success of this ensemble Otto Hofner transfered the name Don Cossak Choir to Wanja Hlibka. Hofner was deeply convinced to have found in Wanja Hlibka a worthy and legitimate successor of Serge Jaroff and he was confident in an authentic continuation of the Original Choir. This new release proves that Hilbka will carry on the ensemble's legacy.
