About

Dmitri Hvorostovsky’s on-going collaboration with Delos has explored many worthwhile sides of the Siberian baritone’s far-reaching musical interests.” - Opera News

A nostalgia-inspiring survey drawn from the extensive body of popular Russian WWII-era songs, this album is the sequel to two all-time favourite Delos titles: Where Are You, My Brothers and Moscow Nights. These sentimental, melancholic, and passionate songs have a strong global appeal, expressing as they do the universal themes and feelings common to soldiers the world over.

Operatic superstar baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky delivers these musical mainstays of Russian culture with relaxed classical technique and the kind of refined, yet soulful and deeply affecting emotional impact that have made his concerts of these pieces wildly popular all across Russia and around the world.

Constantine Orbelian leads the superb Novaya Opera Orchestra and the renowned Ministry of Internal Affairs Chorus – with flavourful idiomatic touches from the unique Style of Five Ensemble on authentic Russian folk instruments.
