Leonid Kharitonov has passed away

September 25 2017   24 Commented

My name is Mikhail Kharitonov and I’m the younger son of Leonid Mikhailovich. I have a very sad news for all the admirers of the famous Russian operatic singer. Leonid Mikhailovich Kharitonov has passed away on the 19th of September, 2017, after suffering his 5th heart attack. This happened the next day after his 84th birthday.

For that reason and in the memory of the artist, I would like to show you his favorite Russian romance song which he considered to be the main song of his life – “Shine, shine, my star!”. Farewell, dear father and a great singer!

    It was very sad to hear of the great Mr. Kharitonov’s passing. I will always remember him and Fyodor Shalyapin as the two most accomplished and expressive bass voices ever recorded. Leonid Kharitonov will be immortalised through his many, many, wonderful performances and recordings. до свидания Леонид!
