Dmitri Hvorostovsky

1962 – 2017

Introduction

Siberian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky established an extraordinary international career, performing at the most prestigious opera houses, concert halls, and festivals of the world. His distinctive voice, incomparable legato, breath control, and stage presence, firmly cemented his repuation as one of the finest singers of the century.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dmitri Hvorostovsky on Wednesday 22 November 2017 after a two and a half year battle with brain cancer.

It has been a great joy and an honour for our colleagues to have worked with Dmitri over the past three decades, and he will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with Dmitri’s family and friends.

Farewell, Dima. Rest in Peace.
