An Evening with Ildar Abdrazakov
Vanity Fair calls him “one of the most sought-after young basses in the operatic world,” and Sylvain Fort of Classica claims that he is “without rival in this repertory today.” This singular talent is Ildar Abdrazakov, a Russian-born bass who usually leads a larger cast. In 2014, he opened the season at MET Opera as the leading role in Le Nozze Di Figaro, and played the title role in MET Opera’s production of Prince Igor that was called “one of the top ten classical events of 2014” by the New York Times. Now Ildar Abdrazakov is performing his debut US solo recital. During this special concert, he shares iconic solos from Fauré, Liszt, and Ravel, as well as rafter-shaking renditions of Russian opera favorites by Glinka, Tchaikovsky, and Mussorgsky.
Among the world's most storied venues, Carnegie Hall has hosted the finest performers since philanthropist Andrew Carnegie founded it more than 120 years ago. Finished in 1891, the structure was planned just before the advent of steel-frame construction, necessitating a solid masonry design that insulates its halls from outside noise and lends the exterior its red-brick charm. The hall's architects traveled to Europe during the planning stages, carefully noting the acoustic qualities of the continent's best venues while finding themselves put off by the overwrought baroque stylings of many of the buildings. The resultant design eschews flowery ornamentation for a spare, elegant Italian Renaissance style, coupled with peerless sonic resonance. The Hall's centerpiece—the historic Perelman Stage—is renowned for its acoustics and Italian design rife with white walls, gold fixtures, and graffiti tags from Michelangelo.
