Dmitri Hvorostovsky in Recital: February 26
“He is sending aficionados the world over into a collective swoon,” raves Vanity Fair about Siberian superstar Dmitri Hvorostovsky — and on Friday, February 26, Lyric audiences will be treated to an unforgettable evening of artistry when he appears in an intimate recital with pianist Ivari Ilja. Don’t miss this special opportunity to hear one of the most world-renowned artists of our day performing some of his favorite music in this one-night-only event!
This recital gives you a rare opportunity to discover new facets of composers whose glorious music you’ve enjoyed in the concert hall and the opera house. Glinka, Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, and Richard Strauss are all known for spectacular, grand-scale pieces, but Dmitri will be bringing us the intimate side of their music with one superbly beautiful song after another. All four of these composers had an extraordinary gift as writers for solo voice, and their songs exude an emotional impact that will make Dmitri’s interpretations at Lyric unforgettable.
“Confidence, daring, exceptional technique and a caramel-colored voice that, if it were possible for a voice to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee, his can and does,” according to The Washington Post. Find out firsthand why star soprano Renée Fleming says, “There is no voice more beautiful than his.”
