The Latest

  • Further acclaim for “The Bells of Dawn”

    Dmitri Hvorostovsky’s latest album, The Bells of Dawn, continues to earn critical accolades following its release in September. Recorded for Ondine with the Grand Choir “Masters of Choral Singing” and Lev Kontorovich, The Bells of Dawn is featured in this month’s Gramophone magazine as a critic’s pick. “Hvorostovsky strikes a note of artless sincerity, matching the choir in mellifluousness, control of melodic line and in unaffected expressiveness,” writes the magazine of the sacred element of this album, adding that in the folk component of the recording, “Hvorostovsky is equally in his element, finding the spontaneity of phrasing and the subtle inflections of joy and sadness (mainly sadness) that these timeless narratives embrace.”

    December’s Opera News also spotlights the album in its reviews section. “In the stunningly sung solo ‘Proshchay, radost’ (Farewell, happiness), one can admire Hvorostovsky’s dead-on pitch, intensity, and deployment of the almost hiccuping glottal cutoffs…As an interpreter, Hvorostovsky is forceful and straightforward, which is just what’s needed here.”
