It’s so hard to believe that five years have gone by without our beloved Dmitri Hvorostovsky! It was truly a gift that I was able to work alongside this extraordinary human being for almost 20 years, bringing his tremendous talent to every major city in Russia, to the European music capitals, and to the major musical centers in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Korea and Japan. Thankfully, Dmitri always found time to make recordings. Something inside him told him that he should immortalize his glorious voice and interpretations for future generations to hear. Fortunately, in addition to his wonderful solo albums, we were also able to produce both audio recordings and DVDs with some of the world’s most amazing singers and beloved colleagues whose voices Dmitri cherished.
