It’s four years since he died. Missed forever.


  • Sue Sonata Form says:

    Dearly beloved. And so very much missed.

  • John Salter says:

    One of the truly great. Very sadly missed.

  • PS says:

    His album Songs and Dances of Death is one of my favorites but certainly sounds different to me now.

  • BRUCEB says:

    One of the greats. RIP.

  • Zelda Macnamara says:

    One of my most treasured memories is his concert in Barcelona in November 2016 – we went from the UK specially for that concert. It was a wonderful event but also very sad because everybody knew it was the countdown. I think we are so privileged to have lived on the planet at the same time as this great artist.

  • Kathleen E King says:

    Some people NEVER would be missed as Gilbert and Sullivan so famously observed, but then there are the rare and wonderful ones such as this great man and great singer who leave a HUGE hole in both life and art. Such a loss.

  • Mary S.Munro says:

    I absolutely fell in love Dmitry. What an exotic and beautiful magnificent creature, blessed with a voice that is just as amazing. Then I found out that he had died and how operatic is that!
    I never heard of this site before and wondered how a chiropractic site wbould make it onto my Google page with a headline of Dmitry. Now I know and I will
    subscribe immediately. Thank you.

  • Gabrielle Arboleda says:

    I also consider it a gift to my life to have found him and his music. Listening to Dima, is listening to perfection, not only technical but human too. He gave his heart for his singing, transforming every note.

  • Chmurna says:

    Osierocił nie tylko bliskich ale i nas. Wielki Artysta silny, charyzmatyczny ale kruchy sercem i duszą.Niepowtarzalny.Jestem pod Jego wielkim urokiem.

    I first heard Dmitri sing when he won the Cardiff Singer of the Year (now of the World ) in 1989. His voice was incredible and his breath control was awe inspiring. Not many months later I heard by chance from a fellow train passenger, a stranger, that he was coming to sing in Edinburgh’s Usher Hall, my home town. I saw him live then! I was in love with his voice and a bit in love with him I think! He will never be forgotten and his music lives on
