Yusif Eyvazov Announces ‘Conversations with Extraordinary People’

By Francisco Salazar

Yusif Eyvazov has announced a new project entitled “Conversations with extraordinary people” on Instagram.

The tenor announced the show stating, “I’ve been lucky to meet and to work with the most talented and outstanding artists of our time. Then I got the idea of an artist being interviewed, not by a journalist, but by another artist. I find it new and exciting because it will be a friendly conversation between 2 pals to discuss the most important and interesting topics. In the opening part of my project I will interview Russian classical musicians. Unfortunately these interviews will be available only in Russian. But the project planning phases include interviews in English and Italian.”

Among his first guests will be Plácido Domingo, Valery Gergiev, Ekaterina Semenchuck, Elchin Azizov, Maxim Vengerov, Elena Stikhina, and Maxim Mironov, among others.

The tenor, who will perform in the Wiener Staatsoper and Metropolitan Opera at home galas, is the latest opera star to announce an instagram program following such prominent artists as Isabel Leonard and Jennifer Rowley.
