“What I was unprepared for was the sheer force of the music, the power in the music in the lyric being intoned by the voice of a bass baritone for which the word ‘awesome’ might have been coined…
…And the voice I heard through the walls of stone? The first intimation of an immortal evening? The voice belongs to Andrej Kushchinsky, a Ukrainian baritone who is a first year undergraduate. One can only imagine the dizzying heights to which his talent will ascend.”
