Dmitry Hvorostovsky, still in hospital, resumes rehearsal

The great Russian baritone, hospitalised with pneumonia in St Petersburg on December 20, does not yet have a release date. But he is so determined to go ahead this month with a recital in Yekaterinburg that Russian sources say he is rehearsing in his hospital bed.

Hvorostovsky, 54, is receiving treatment for a brain tumour.
