Dmitry will snatch you from your seat and deposit you inside gilded walls and ceiling frescoes. He’ll show you corsets and waistcoats. Plunging necklines and lace jabots. Royalty and aristocracy. Opulence and grandeur. Drama, tension, exuberance and extravagance. And he’ll do it effortlessly. As if there is no distinction between him and his violin. He is the music and the music is him – unafraid, uninterrupted, flawless.
To watch Dmitry perform is to see the two, equally impressive sides of his personality emerge – the virtuoso violinist and the emotional countertenor.
