Dmitri Hvorostovsky Sings of War, Peace, Love and Sorrow
The incomparable Siberian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky — best known internationally for his Verdi roles — makes a powerful return to operatic masterpieces of his homeland. Leading this gripping album of Russian arias and scenes is Hvorostovsky’s frequent collaborator, Constantine Orbelian.
We are treated to the vibrant opening scene from Prokofiev’s War and Peace, as well as popular arias from Tchaikovsky’s Mazeppa, Iolanta and Queen of Spades. We also get a seldom-heard rarity: virtually the entire final dramatic scene from Anton Rubinstein’s The Demon.
All Who Wander
Mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton burst upon the global opera and concert scene in recent years after having won many of the world’s most prestigious prizes for vocal excellence and accomplishments. Delos has scored a major coup in releasing her debut album.
Jamie’s well-chosen program of late-Romantic repertoire begins with eight of Gustav Mahler’s finest lieder – including his wonderful Five Rückert Songs – before treating us to the rare delights of Antonin Dvořák’s song cycle Gypsy Songs. Her album concludes with even more seldom-heard selections from the many lovely Swedish-language songs of Finnish master Jean Sibelius.
