The accompanist - Ivari Ilja - Is a professor and head of the piano faculty at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre!

I haven't recieved any masterclasses from him yet, but I do know him since I see him often whenever I visit the academy for some reason.

I'm just proud, because he is quite probably going to be my future teacher, if I should go to the academy smile

He's a great pianist, worthy of his own solo recitals at the Carnegie.

He's a wonderful baritone. That's the first I've heard of his illness. Hopefully, he will fully recover. Thanks for posting this.


Best regards,

Deborah

Nice post. Great review. I pray from him tonight.


Do or do not. There is no try.

I saw him on stage singing a very fine "Onegin" at Covent Garden in December.

Wonderful recital, but I do wish they had chosen a better piano. There are good Steinways and not so good Steinways. I thought the one they chose was of inferior quality. I was particularly struck by Hvorostovsky's ability to sustain notes - such a gift to the listener to be bathed in the beautiful tone quality of his voice. His final a cappella encore was really stunning.
