Rimsky-Korsakov - The Tsar’s Bride, Lincoln Center New York

The most outstanding soloists were Elchin Azizov, in the role of Grigory Gryaznoy, and Agunda Kulaeva, as Lyubasha, his jealous mistress. Azizov displayed a robust baritone in his dramatic solo scene that begins the opera, and showed no signs of fatigue throughout the evening as he performed this demanding role.

Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Rachmaninov - Birmingham Symphony Hall

His performance was confident and impressive from the outset. He gave a precise and powerful rendition of “The Mournful Iron Bells”; this was expressive, emotive singing from a performer with a fantastic voice. Azizov brought the concert full circle, ending the performance with the same high calibre of the opening.
