Dmitri Hvorostovsky & Ivari Ilja: Tchaikovsky - Tell Me, What In The Shade of The Branches

Intensity, lyricism, power: all words that can be accurately applied to baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky. As, indeed, can versatility, his career having embraced iconic roles from the Russian and Italian operatic repertoire alike, and even Neapolitan songs. Variety reigns in this recital too, from the charm and emotion of Tchaikovsky Romances, to rarely-heard songs by his pupil and subsequently great friend, Taneyev, passing through the elegant beauty of Fauré's songs and even some songs by Liszt, themselves surprisingly rare pieces on the concert platform. Hvorostovsky has gained a well-earned reputation for uniqueness and beauty of tone, as well as dramatic stage presence: such attributes should see this thoughtfully-conceived programme expertly and engagingly served.

'Whether in solo recitals or in fully staged operas, the singer exudes a smoldering charisma that commands attention and holds it.'  Wall Street Journal

'This Siberian baritone is one reason opera audiences are getting younger, but it’s the beauty and drama of his voice – refined and powerful – that cuts across barriers of age and taste.' Elle Magazine

'It is on the recital stage that Mr. Hvorostovsky will make his lasting mark.' New York Times
