Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

"Bringing them all to life is Hvorostovsky's performance - passionate, brooding or forceful with Pushkin's flowing lines, in a manner which might be a bit overpowering in less emotional music, but is exactly right for these songs...His word-sense and diction remain exemplary...Ivari Ilja is an equally spirited accompanist." BBC Music Magazine, August 2010 *****

"...there's a particularly Russian ecstasy and agony in Pushkin's lyrical poetry that requires a broad musical brush to do it proper justice. This seems bred in the artistic bone for Hvorostovsky, so there's an almost conversation style...Despite his formidable horsepower [he] can be silky and subtle when required...evidently a singer for all Russian seasons!" International Record Review, July/August 2010

"...his demonstration of finely controlled legato and evenness of tone through the registers is truly impressive." Gramophone Magazine, September 2010

Reviews

Beautiful music, glorious interpretation
These are beautiful, personal, and heartfelt compositions that require an interpreter whose first language is Russian. Hvorostovsky captures it all with an emotional pathos that is breathtaking. The music brings out the sadness and pathos that so represents Pushkin, and Hvorostovsky responds with a familiarity with it all.
