Dmitri Hvorostovsky

Isn't it strange how talented people often die in pairs. 

In the USA David Cassidy (67) passed away yesterday and Dmitri Hvorostovsky (55) the leading operatic baritone for the Moscow Symphony passed away this morning.  Both were taken much too soon.

I have enclosed a link to a video of a concert that I actually attended while in Moscow in the summer of 2013.  It featured the Moscow Symphony Orchestra playing right in Red Square.  Both Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Anna Netrebko, the leading operatic soprano with the Moscow Symphony sing "Moscow Nights".  It's tremendously moving.  He was a once in a generation talent.   

RIP Dmitri.  Enjoy the video!

He was from Krasnoyarsk, Siberia and married an Italian.

I saw the news on RU TV this am, as I am on a road trip - via the Baltic States.
