About

The bass voice is more prominent in Russian opera than in other national styles, with basses often assigned the roles of men in positions of great authority and influence (ie kings, military heroes) – hence this album’s title, “Power Players.”

Distinguished Russian Bass Ildar Abdrazakov, now 37, devoted his early years to Italian and French repertoire – but he has returned to his national operatic roots as his voice has deepened over time, making it supremely well-suited to the richer vocal sound called for by the great Russian roles.
