Program notes

Ildar Abdrazakov—the “sensational bass…who has just about everything—imposing sound, beautiful legato, oodles of finesse” (The Independent)—welcomes you to Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Concert Hall for a truly grand evening of opera tunes and arias, in the company of the Tatarstan National Symphony Orchestra under Alexander Sladkovsky. The bass's booming voice resounds in the prestigious venue throughout this riveting program, entitled Kings and Devils, which highlights the virtuoso’s impressive range. By turns majestic and powerful, playful and irreverent, Abdrazakov displays his world-renowned technique and musicality in works by Tchaikovsky, Verdi, Borodin, Offenbach, and many more...
