It does seem that Dmitri H. is the only topic on FB since his passing on November 22. A ceaseless outcry of mourning from music lovers all over the world – maybe only comparable with the reactions after Herbert von Karajan’s passing or the shooting of President Kennedy.
This video does show again his tremendous musical mastership and charismatic impact. Together with his enormous charisma and higher sense of being when on stage, he was a rare gift. He did prove that opera is not dead or outdated. The power of music was shown in each of his performances. His singing did flow straight out from his higher self into the hearts of the listeners.
During his tragic sickness he became even stronger and never gave up. This video also does show that concerts can be as strong as opera on stage. With his concerts he could touch even more people on a personal level.
He will be missed, but his art does give hope and opera will never be dead or outdated.
Please check more on Youtube and you will find part of his legacy. He could sing all styles and composers…(even Wagner, but just in concert).
