Dmitri Hvorostovsky, baritone
--with Ivari Ilja, piano
Internationally acclaimed Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky, acclaimed for his cultivated voice, innate sense of musical line and natural legato, keeps a busy schedule of regular engagements at the world's major opera houses, concert stages, and international festivals. The Guardian has raved, "Genuine stars are rare in the classical music world.... The moment he steps on to the platform there are cheers.... Staggering stuff, all of it, leaving you in no doubt that he is one of the great recitalists of our time."
Mr. Hvorostovsky's program includes songs and arias by Rachmaninoff and Sviridov. Presented in partnership with The Choral Arts Society of Washington.
Performance Timing: Approximately 2 hours, with one 18-minute intermission
