Prepare for endless delight and intense emotional stimulation as you listen to soprano Veronika Dzhieova’s marvelous collection of her favorite Italian arias, with wonderful support from the GRAMMY®-nominated team of Constantine Orbelian— “the singer’s dream collaborator” (Opera News)— and his superb Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra.
“plenty of bang for your buck in this high-voltage recital by a rising soprano… It’s hard to argue with her impressive weaponry”—Neil Fisher, Gramophone Magazine
Verdi: Messa da Requiem – In Memory of Dmitri Hvorostovsky
In the wake of the beloved Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky’s untimely passing in November 2017, tributes, memorials and musical event dedications have flowed non-stop. But none thus far has matched the sheer scope, power and sonic splendor of this all-Russian performance of Verdi’s blockbuster Requiem Mass.
“a magnificent setting, choral singing and orchestral performance of spirituality and drama under conductor Yuri Temirkanov, it has much to admire in a very competitive market of this work.”—Robert Farr, MusicWeb International
