Notes and Editorial Reviews

New Live DVD from St. Petersburg features the great baritone singing favourite Russian romances and songs. Dmitri Hvorostovsky, 'one of the voices of the century', (Opera News) has become the foremost champion of Russian Soul in song form. 'The mutual love between Dmitri and his Russian public is now legendary', says Constantine Orbelian. 'Since 1994, he has carried the title of the People's Artist of Russia - and the title is not merely a formal one. He 'is' the People's Artist. Every summer the great Siberian baritone interrupts his international opera and concert schedule to return to Russia and embrace his own people with concerts of their favourite Russian romances and songs. This all goes to make up for a most felicitous late summer Read more night event, and the audience response is tremendous: cheers, bows, much love and lots of flowers. Dmitri is his usual charismatic self in radiant voice, a truly gracious artist. During November, December, and January 2007 Dmitri Hvorovstovsky, Constantine Orbelian, the Moscow Chamber Orchestra and the Style of Five are touring Europe, Mexico, Canada and the USA in a program that has much in common with this new DVD, featuring Russian classic and popular music.
