    Default Dmitri Hvorostovsky

    I'd be interested in hearing your opinions. . . I watched as he won the Singer of the World (?) Competition years ago, & now he has brain cancer. . . .

    From what I understand his brain tumor is non-cancerous. Though any brain tumor is clearly devastating!!

    I am a great fan of Dmitri. He has such a wonderful rich voice, and I enjoy his repoirtoire in both opera and Russian songs. He's one of my favorite singers

    Bad news indeed. I can't find this story via a search. Can you possibly provide a source? English would be nice but not necessary.

    I heard he was doing better. He performed at the met in May. I remember one of my first classical music experiences was a recital of his my grandmother took me to. I recall the power of his voice, and my grandmother's remark "he shook the room!". This was about a decade ago, and even the he wasn't in his youth. I can only imagine what thirty year-old Dmitri might be capable of. I was discussing Hvorostovsky with a friend, and we agreed that no recording captures the true power of his voice.

    Of course I think this is true of anything. The best Beethoven's ninth I've ever heard was the Karajan; wasn't the Furtwangler; wasn't the Wand. Christoph Eschenbach with the National Symphony Orchestra takes the cake. If the bass Solomon Howard ever comes to your town, you need to see him.

    In the end of the last video Dmitri tells about his wish to visit his hometown for the last time..
