Moscow Pays Tribute to Late Bulgarian Basso
Ghiaurov reaped one of his major successes on stage with Russian opera arias.
Bulgarian Culture Institute in Moscow has opened a commemoration book for his colleagues, diplomats and fellow countrymen willing to write down their condolences.
Nikolay Ghiaurov died in a Modena hospital on June 2 after being treated from a bout of bronchopneumonia.
Moscow press reports in large about the life and opera triumphs of Nikolay Ghiaurov, reminding about his last visit two years ago. Ghiaurov was said to be "the most Russian of all world bassos", with his incomparable roles at Ebgenii Onegin and Boris Huznov.
Music history has lost one of its milestones, Russian daily Commersant said.
Born in Bulgaria Nikoilay Ghiaurov adopted Italy as his second homeland, married there to world famous soprano Mirella Freni and had wished to be buried there. The funeral will take place on Saturday, in Modena.
