Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Dmitri Hvorostovsky's ongoing collaboration with Delos has explored many worthwhile sides of the Siberian baritone's far-reaching musical interests." - Opera News

Moscow Nights features the cream of postwar Russian popular songs, and highlights inspiring performances by the Moscow Chamber Orchestra and the traditional Russian instrumental ensemble Style of Five.

Maestro Orbelian describes the Moscow Nights program of 17 songs, composed during the post World War II period of the 1950s & 1960s, as songs the entire nation sang. Hvorostovsky says that for the new album he and Orbelian chose from the "best material throughout the Soviet time. I'm convinced that it has great musical and historical
Read more value, as well as wonderful memories for me, from my childhood." This unique release also includes a very special bonus track: an archival tape of 11-year old Hvorostovsky followed by the present-day Hvorostovsky singing the same song.
