Winning the 1989 Cardiff Singer of the World competition launched Hvorostovsky’s career. Debuts at La Scala and Covent Garden followed in 1992 and his reputation was established. He is a highly regarded interpreter of Russian song.

A tribute by Renée Fleming:

'I am so pleased that Dmitri Hvorostovsky is to be inducted into the Gramophone Hall of Fame. Besides being a wonderful colleague, Dmitri possesses a voice with a quality of velvet that is both a joy to hear and immediately recognisable. Dmitri’s technique is impeccable – he has the best breath control I’ve ever encountered. He is a consummate musician. Add to this his charisma and committed portrayals, and you have a complete singing artist.'
