About Ildar Abdrazakov
The opera bass Ildar Abdrazakov appeared at La Scala in Milan for the first time when he was 25. Since then the Russian singer has regularly taken to the stage in the leading opera houses around the world. In the 2014/15 opera season he slips into the role of Figaro in Mozart’s »Le Nozze di Figaro« and toreador Escamillo in Bizet’s »Carmen« at the Metropolitan Opera New York. In addition, Abdrazakov can be heard at the Salzburger Festspiele and on tour with Anna Netrebko. His powerful yet refined voice coupled with his compelling stage presence have prompted critics to hail him as a “sensational bass…who has just about everything – imposing sound, beautiful legato, oodles of finesse” (The Independent). Since 2007 Ildar Abdrazakov has been an ambassador for the Zegna & Music project, a philanthropic initiative founded by Ermenegildo Zegna to promote music and its values. Abdrazakov’s concert attire is therefore provided by the internationally renowned designer. The Russian star is performing at Badrutt’s Palace Hotel on 4th January 2015 together with the singer Elena Maximova, accompanied by Mzia Bakhtouridze on piano.
About Toto Cutugno
Toto Cutugno was born in Tuscany and first made a name in his musical career as a songwriter. In 1975 he wrote the song »L’été Indien« recorded by Joe Dassin, which was later to become an international hit. After a while performing with his band »Albatros« he plucked up the courage to go solo in 1978 and in 1980 he won the San Remo Music Festival with his song »Solo noi«. There followed numerous musical successes. In 1987 he brought out his album Mediterraneo, which was awarded with gold and platinum discs. Cutugno also shone as the TV presenter of the Italian show »Domenica IN«, until he won the European Song Contest in Zagreb in 1990. After various appointments in the TV business Cutugno returned to the studio in 2001. »Il treno va«, as well as other songs, some with singer Annalisa Minetti, were greatly instrumental in his rise in popularity. Since 2010 Toto Cutugno has been touring the world and collaborating with many national and international artists. At the 2013 San Remo Music Festival he received an accolade for his career in music.
