Couple Wins Grammy

ST. PETERSBURG — Mezzo-soprano Olga Borodina and bass Ildar Abdrazakov, a married couple who both started out at the Mariinsky Theater shared their first Grammy award.

“I am very happy that my first Grammy and Ildar’s is a family one,” Borodina told reporters at the Mariinsky Theater.

The couple won the Best Classical Album and Best Choral Performance categories for the recording of Giuseppe Verdi’s “Requiem” by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus under the baton of Riccardo Muti.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
