Dmitri Hvorostovsky, it has been a year

The Russian government has renamed the Academy of Music and Theatre in Krasnoyarsk after the city’s most successful son. It will be known from today as the Siberian State Institute of Arts named after Dmitri Hvorostovsky.

The great baritone died in London of brain cancer on November 22, 2017.

He will not be forgotten.

  • Dmitri we miss your music and your huge smile!! A sobering reminder, if one were necessary, that life IS terribly short. And cruel.

  • Not a day has gone by that I have not listened to Dmitri. On this Thanksgiving Day in the United States I give thanks for all that he gave to us and the legacy that he has left to us. His wife, children, parents, friends and colleagues continue to grieve such a huge loss as we all do. I wish them much strength and love.
