Notes & Reviews:

Two of opera's biggest stars, on the crest of solo album triumphs, team up for this long-awaited duet album of Verdi Scenes. It is high drama, with Dmitri Hvorostovsky, widely recognized as "the Verdi baritone of our time" (Los Angeles Times), and Sondra Radvanovsky, the fastest-rising "true Verdi soprano" (Opera News) in international opera today. The electricity is palpable in the emotional duet scenes from Il Trovatore, Un Ballo in Maschera, and Simon Boccanegra. Dmitri sings a favorite among his signature arias, "O Carlo, ascolta," from Don Carlo; and Sondra gives us a memorable glimpse of her Tosca in "Vissi d'arte." We are treated to delightful Mozart and tender Dvorak. Dmitri's favorite conductor, Constantine Orbelian, leads the Philharmonia of Russia in masterful fashion.
