An outstanding album in every respect. The program is carefully chosen. Differently from Hvorostovsky's recent song-albums this one builds on two closely-knit cycles: Tchaikovsky's Six Romances and Mussorgsky's Songs and Dances of Death. The third block contains six songs by Taneyev but these, too, touch the dominant themes of the cycles: love and death. Hvorostovsky's voice is in perfect shape, it is as fresh as new, flies up to the high regions with ease, its unique timbre , its shining darkness is as if the voice was the embodiment of the title. His characteristic deep emotionality comes through best in the Tchaikovsky songs, and his signature song 'Again, as before, alone' gets new dimensions as the closing piece of the cycle which carries the listener from regret and loss (You and I were sitting together) through dreaming and desire (In this moonlit night) to hymnic heights of love (The sun has set) , then back to loneliness and unutterable anguish again in the last song. Then a bit longer pause - and the ultimate surprise comes. The Mussorgsky cycle is performed usually with orchestration (Hvorostovsky himself made earlier records of it with Gergiev and with Temirkanov) so the turnback to the piano-version was a bit risky, to put it mildly. But the result convinces that this is the right form! Much-much more intense than even the best orchestral version. Ivari Ilja's congenial piano playing sets the scene perfectly for each song, and what Hvorostovsky does is more than fantastic singing. His voice changes with the characters, he creates dramatic scenes so different in the four songs but equally chilling the blood in an omnipresent danse macabre.Read more ›

What a great CD. A whole CD of vocal and piano can sometimes be too much but this is wonderful music.

But I heard a part of it. It is really a gem... And I am not speaking only about authors of songs, but first of all about a voice, which sings it. Really is as an good old vine. His expression has a spark, experience, confidence, brillance, strength, shine, warmth, colors countless ... This all maybe means only, that maestro Hvorostovski loves this songs and is singing it by his heart and soul. And as a Russian has he soul wide and his heart is big...And voice amazing. And it is, why this CD is unique, extraordinary.
BUT - AMAZON, I WANT THIS MY OWN, 28 OF JANUARY ORDERED AND PAYED CD!!! I WANT IT! I NEED IT! I LOVE IT. PLEASE... I HAVE THE RIGHT TO THIS CD.
Thanks...
