The voice to jump start your libido

Hvorostovsky has one of those rare voices that has a bit of everything in it. It's not huge but it is full and rich...it's not light but he is skilled and tasteful and sings heart-throbbing pianos. It is dark, but resonant and with ease and movement in his singing. He never seems to get bogged down and thick but always on top of the notes. He is powerful in so many ways, vocally yes, but musically his singing is intense and passionate and very attractive. He conveys a powerful masculinity that many other equally powerful singers do not. This is great album to get as a sample of Hvorostovsky's versitlity but also as an exciting intro to some Russion music as well.

A springboard into beautiful classical singing!

Dmitri Hvorostovsky's A Portrait is a stirring collection of both Russian folksong and Italian/Russian Operatic Recitative & Arias. Dmitri's commanding vocal presence is evident throughout both discs, and his resounding baritone is both rich and clean. Projecting a masculine image onto a subtle phrase ending in piano, a rarity in classical vocal music, is something Hvorostovsky has mastered. This set can be both an exploratory pleasure to a newcomer to classical music, and a reminder to an opera enthusiast why they fell in love with opera in the first place. Hvorostovsky hits an absolute homerun with this set! Bravississimo!

Beauty

Ladies....this is a physically beautiful man with a glint of that power in his eyes! His voice matches. His dark Russian sound is filled with expression of passion on many levels. Try it. You'll like it.

His brilliant, yet deceptively dark-hued voice is the embodiment of chiaroscuro, and the combination of vocal polish and emotion that he brings to his performances has made him an audience favorite. Having grown up, studied, and debuted (as Marullo in Rigoletto) in his hometown of...
