Today was not the Dmitri Hvorostovsky: one of the best Opera singers in the world died in London on 56-m to year of life. In the last two years, during which the singer struggled with the disease, he tried to spend more time with family and rarely gave interviews. RIA Novosti has collected the statements of the Russian artist on the most important topic for him.

About fear and memory

  • «Real art is one that was in the besieged Leningrad, where people went to Philharmonic concerts — through pain, hunger, loss of loved ones. They saw in the music of deliverance from suffering, as in religion. In the nineties, when there was devastation, people also came to classical music concerts as a religious act».
  • «I heard played by Western orchestras: excellent sound quality, comfortable, but there is no conflict, suffering, depth. Not because they do not feel the conductor or the musicians. <…> I think they have that in the genes. This country is not frightened of people: they live for centuries, not knowing what war, destruction and what it means to love a man».

  • «The listener behind the Creator for at least a century. What is written by outstanding composers of our time, still waiting in the wings».
  • «The Lord may not know and think about each of us. We ourselves provided. I’m sure the afterlife is not and cannot be. We are given only one life we have to live without drafts, from the first attempt, trying to leave a mark and be happy. Because then you wouldn’t have a chance.»

  • «If one knows himself, he is calm. I was always calm, never fussy. Know that I have perspective, do not doubt that sooner or later will be able to achieve everything. My goals were set and developed gradually, I didn’t want to conquer the world in 20 years».
  • «In 50 years I very much have already. Even if you suddenly up and dies now — made enough to leave a mark, and a good memory about yourself. So I’m absolutely not afraid of anything».
