  1. quite enjoyed this puzzle
    first time thru, pretty empty grid, heh

  2. A fun one, thank you! I was happy to know quite a few of the names right off (16A, 23A, 27A, 33A, 6D, 22D, 44D), but needed the crosses for 14A, 17A, 45A, 41A. Speaking of 15A, the wonderful baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky was from Krasnoyarsk.
