Dmitri Hvorostovsky in Concert
Russian Songs of the War Years
Verdi: La Traviata
"Robert Carson directs this version of . . . Verdi's La Traviata, based on the original stage version that premiered at the Teatro La Fenice in March of 1853 and performed live before an appreciative audience at the very same theater in November of 2004. Patrizia Ciofi, Roberto Sacca, and Dmitri Hvorostovsky headline the performance, and the Orchestra e Coro del Teatro La Fenice perform under the guiding hand of conductor Lorin Maazel." Jason Buchanan
Verdi - Il Trovatore / Cura, Hovorostovsky, Villarroel,
Naef, Rizzi, Covent Garden
The DVD (for Europe) of a Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, production of Il Trovatore with Dmitri Hvorostovsky as the Count di Luna can be ordered from amazon.co.uk.
"Carlo Rizzi is an energising conductor, and his cast boasts José Cura's complex and vocally articulate view of Manrico, a fearsome Azucena from Yvonne Naef, Dmitri Hvorostovsky in resplendent voice as Di Luna and in Verónica Villarroel a sensitive but over-parted Leonora."--from review by George Hall in BBC Music Magazine of Feburary 2003.
