About

In terms of popularity, only a few in domestic variety art could compete with Muslim Magomayev whose admirable baritone, high artistry and heartfelt generosity conquered generations of listeners. His range of capabilities was uncommonly wide – from operas to musicals, from Neapolitan songs to vocal works of Azerbaijani and Russian composers…”, wrote Sviatoslav Belza in the foreword to the singer’s book 'Melody Is My Love'.

Muslim Magomayev combined operatic performances with popular music concerts for many years without being untrue to himself and whilst still preserving a high vocal mastery. A soloist of the Azerbaijani Theatre of Opera and Ballet, he was trained at Teatro alla Scala and performed on many of the opera stages of the Soviet Union, but rejected (what a rare case!) the invitation to the Bolshoi Theatre, realizing the colossal responsibility of such a step. He could not and did not want to sacrifice his versatility and openness, his contact with millions of fans, his concert and studio work, his acting and composing career even on as a magnificent operatic altar as that.

His recordings of Russian and foreign classical opera music accomplished 50 years ago with a friend and companion, remarkable Azerbaijani composer and conductor Niyazi Tagizade Hajibeyov sound as bright and unexpectedly fresh today as they did then.
