This album was recorded in October of 2015, after bass-baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky was diagnosed with brain cancer and had undergone treatment. As has been noted in reviews of live performances, the issue does not appear to have affected his voice, and he seems to be on the mend, to the relief of all. The program here, as indeed many of his live concerts have been since this event, is relatively short (53-plus minutes), and it's strong enough to make you wish for more. Hvorostovsky has specialized in Verdi roles lately, but here the repertoire is all Russian, and the singer was perhaps returning to material in which he had been trained. There are six tracks, and it's the final one, an entire 26-minute scene from Rubinstein's The Demon, with supporting singers, that really commands attention. The rest of the world has forgotten Anton Rubinstein, but not Russians, and this tale of a fallen angel in love has long been one of Hvorostovsky's specialties. The sweep and depth of this performance are remarkable. In front of that you get a scene from Prokofiev's War and Peace and four shorter Tchaikovsky excerpts, all absorbing, but the main attraction is the Rubinstein. Hvorostovsky gets strong support from the cumbersomely named State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia "Evgeny Svetlanov," under Constantine Orbelian, and the American label Delos, working in a Moscow film studio, delivers clear sound.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

Beethoven: Fidelio's Big Adventure

Based on a story from France during the Revolutionary Terror (the story of an intrepid young woman who disguised herself as a man to save her husband from the dungeon), Beethoven's unique opera has had a turbulent life, and has been reworked here and there over the years. New proof of the German composer's musical genius, Fidelio also permitted him to write a musical setting for a libretto that matched his political beliefs.
