CD Cover of 'Where Are You, My Brothers?'
Baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky recently visited NPR studios in Washington, D.C. The Russian singer is currently on an American concert tour that ends at Carnegie hall in May. He was joined in Studio 4A by pianist Marie-France Lefebvre.
Hvorostovsky performed the prince's aria from The Queen of Spades by Tchaikovsky, followed by two Neapolitan songs written near the turn of the 20th century, "Voce e Notte" and "Coure Ingrata." He finishes with the heartbreaking death scene aria by Rodrigo from Verdi's opera Don Carlo.
