"If you like the type of ‘Russian’ tenor voice that was Kozlovsky’s, Lemeshev’s or Orfenov’s, you should certainly warm to that of the Georgian tenor David Badridze. His operatic repertoire encompassed a wide range….His version of Vladimir’s Cavatina from PRINCE IGOR is among the best, and as he eloquently caressed ‘Give me oblivion’ from DUBROVSKY, I wondered again why such a lovely aria is not better known in the west: Badridze is a persuasive advocate…."
