Thank you for this post about Dmitri Hvorostovsky and once again for the recent two posts about Simon Keenlyside. you should have put here something from Simon Boccanegra that he has recently sung or his songs or something from Trovatore, as he is singing Luna in the MET in April this year :)ReplyDelete
as regards Simon Keenlyside: are you not able to include his Rigoletto, or Peleas, Oreste, Bily Budd ? Or Onegin:-) there isnt enough of Russian opera still.
Of these three arias sung here in this post by Dmitri Hvorostovsky i prefer the Prince Igor aria, but all three are great, Dmitri has recorded all three arias on his CD Heroes and Villains, where are also another Russian arias and other arias such as Hamlet´s aria, Scarpia´s, Don Carlo´s from La forza del Destino and a very beautiful aria of Valentin from Gounod´s Faust.
