A friend of the Siberian baritone has informed Tass, the Russian news agency, that weekend reports of Hvorostovsky’s hospitalisation in Moscow are completely false.

‘He was not hospitalized,’ said lawyer Pavel Astakhov, ‘here he is sitting next to me, laughing.’

The reports had been circulated on some Russian and music websites, despite a specific request from Hvorostovsky’s family not to speculate about his health.

The singer is undergoing outpatient treatment for a brain tumour. He has been completely frank about his condition.
