This autumn marks five year since the death of the baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky, aged just 55. To mark this sad anniversary Decca Eloquence has gathered together the 11 recital programmes he recorded for Philips following his sensational triumph at the 1989 Cardiff Singer of the World competition, one that launched his live and recorded career. Anna Barry was the producer of all of Hvorostovsky’s recordings for Philips, and for this week's edition of the Gramophone Podcast she joined Editor Martin Cullingford to look back at a glorious voice and a fine artist.
