On Monday, it was announced that the 2019 International Opera Awards had selected soprano Asmik Grigorian as Female Singer of the Year and tenor Charles Castronovo as Male Singer of the Year!
Ms. Grigorian is the featured soprano in Delos’s audio recording, Dmitri Hvorostovsky Sings of War, Peace, Love and Sorrow (DE 3517), with distinguished Maestro Constantine Orbelian conducting the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia.
Mr. Castronovo is the male lead in Delos’s video/Blu-ray release of Puccini’s complete opera La Rondine (DV 7010/7011) as staged by the prestigious Deutsche Oper Berlin. It’s hardly surprising that both singers received rave reviews for their work in these outstanding productions.
All of us at Delos extend our heartiest congratulations to both of these marvelous artists and their colleagues, and wish them continued success and recognition as their careers progress.
