I am a blues/rock and roller but once I heard Nikolai Baskov on PBS I had to go see him. Not only is his voice "golden" but he also projects emotion that the best blues players and jazz players (Miles Davis, John Coltrane) are able to project. This is a rear commodity in classical music. So when you take this emotion/feel to the most advance singing techniques (operatic singing) that Mr. Baskov possesses, it can only be described as a spiritual experience. To close ones eye's and listen to his sweeping range and interplay with the orchestra and his singing partner, it is truly an amazing experience and it was a phenomenal performance. The orchestra was excellent, as was his singing partner, but the magic starts when he sings. I was amazed that the Beacon wasn't sold out....I can only ascribe this to it being a 3 day week-end, and a lack of the proper amount of advertising. He is surely one of the best soprano's to ever grace a stage, and to have the opportunity to have seen him, would be akin to seeing Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan or Jimi Hendrix. A true great.
