Dmitri Hvorostovsky in Concert

THE SAN FRANCISCO SYMPHONY PRESENTS GREAT PERFORMERS


Leading Russian baritone, Dmitri Hvorostovsky “stands among the era’s great singers thanks to his combination of rich tone, sonic power, thoughtful characterization and physical appeal.” (Wall Street Journal) Hvorostovsky concludes the 2013-14 Great Performers Series with an exquisite homage to his homeland, bringing together settings of Russia’s greatest poet, Alexander Pushkin, by Glinka, Borodin, Rachmaninoff, and Glière; followed by Shostakovich’s haunting Suite on Verses of Michelangelo Buonarroti.
