Ferruccio Furlanetto


Ferruccio Furlanetto

Melbourne Recital Centre

Glamorous divas and showy tenors are used to the spotlight, but it's a rare performer who can take a sonorous bass and make it world famous. Ferruccio Furlanetto is that performer: a gifted singer-actor with a captivating voice.

He is sought after worldwide, from the Metropolitan Opera to La Scala, to sing the conflicted fathers, tortured priests and playful devils of great operatic works.

He’s coming to the Melbourne Recital Centre for one night only, performing with pianist Igor Tchetuev.

The program explores the soulful poetry of Russian art song. Only the vast expanse of a Russian winter could inspire Mussorgsky's Songs and Dances of Death and Rachmaninov's moody romances. Somehow, the music captures the darkness, cold and longing of a people waiting for the sun, for life and love to return — sparks of light and hope in a bleak night.


Songs including:

A dream
The lilacs
In the silent night
How fair this spot
I was with her
This time
Stay don't leave me
Spring waters

Songs including:

The leaves are sadly rustling
For you the words of love
Song of the old man
The night
The winds are howling
Songs and Dances of Death
