Dear friends I love rossia and wouldlike to be on parade pobedy, I can pay for it, what must I do?
Firstly, you need to come to Moscow ))
It is with great sadness that I offer my condolences to yourself , the people of Russia, and the families and friends of those who have perished in this tragedy . It was Toscanini that stated “music is the fabric that hold the tapestry of humanity together ” The very fabric of music has been torn and the world has lost one of its finest musical and theatrical jewels . the valiant voice of the ensemble as been silenced and the entire world mourns this great loss. to listen to your voice in song is to listen to the heart of the people of Russia and so it was for the rest of the ensemble and my hearts and prayers are with all those who have suffered
This great loss for humanity
Richard, that you for your condolences!
Greetings from Thunder Bay Canada.
Have left this thank you far too long as I have been listening to the wonderful signing of Leonid Kharitonov for many years. How beautiful it is and as one explores all his music on Youtube many other wonderful singers and musicians are discovered.
Wishing Mr Kharitonov and all many blessings at this Christmas time and again extend our heartfelt thank you for the music.
Thank you very much and a very Happy New Year to you too!
Wow! thank you for your music and contributions to a wonderful life! May all people from around the world live in peace as brothers.
dear friend contact me if you can.I would love to hear from you and your son
You can write here. All your writings will be read. Or you can write a letter in a contact form here.
Your singing is brilliant. I wish I could sing half as well. Much could be learned here in New Zealand from your singing.
My sincerest regards to Mr Kharitonov and his family…
I’m a 17 year old student from Portugal, and I have to say that I absolutely adore your performance of “The Cliff”.
I have listened to the voices of many other great opera men, but yours is something else, for me. Such power, on your voice, such patriotism in your body language. Truly, a perfect performance. Brezhnev was not the only one to weap!
Over the years, I have grown more and more interested in Soviet/Russian culture and history, and I have learned how important music was for the Soviet Union and is for the Russian Federation.
Your outsanding performances contribute to my interest, Mr Kharitonov. Thank you very much.
I hope you are well.
Thank you for your comment!
i agree 100%. a magnificent voice and a very moving performance. i come back to his music often, and in his performances his humour and kindness always shines through
Mr Kharitonov’s voice and music has the power to speak to people’s souls. Whenever I feel dejected or depressed with the state of the world I find listening to his 1965 recording of the Volga Boatmen’s Song gives me fresh confidence in the endurance of the human race and its ability to overcome adversity. Mr Kharitonov’s voice tells me the sun will rise tomorrow for all of us.
With deepest regards from Australia.
I am Bonvivant and wrote a reaction in youtube: song of the volgaboatsman: amazing voice.
About 15 years ago I did visit Moscow and had a swimm in the volgariver.
during that swim the song of the volgaboatsman came into my mind.
Thank You for the music You gave to the world.

Greetings from the United States, Mr. Kharitonov,
I am a major fan of many different genres of music -- including the music of Imperial Russia and the Soviet Union. Your rendition of the “Song of the Volga Boatmen” and “Dark-Eyed Cossack Girl” are two of my favorite Soviet-era Russian pieces of music. You have an amazing voice.

Thank you! )
loved the “song of the Volga boatmen.”great singer.from a fan in Oklahoma.
Has Leonid ever provided the voice over in any films? I am thinking of the 2010 Russian movie “The Fortress of War” about the battle at the Fortress of Brest at the beginning of WWII.
No, Leonid has never done it.
Thank you Leonid for your wonderful music and thank you to your son who has been brilliant in documenting your work and making it accessible to thousands of people. A lot of hard work and time has gone into this so thank you.

Thank you, Ed! Indeed it takes time and forces to do all that but it definitly worth it because of such appreciation and such comments. We hope you all enjoyed it!
As I type this note, I am listening to the 1965 film of Leonid Kharitonov and the Red Army Chorus. It is fantastic and I have watched it over 50 times! A whole new world of music was opened up to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Querido Leonid Kharitonov
