Mikhail Lermontov: Onto The Road I Walk Alone (Выхожу один я на дорогу) — Vladimir Miller, basso profundo

Onto The Road I Walk Alone Last November I posted about the Dubna Choral School Choir's performance of Mikhail Lermontov's beautiful  "Onto The Road I Walk Alone" with treble solo by Ser­gei Balas­hov (see: Mikhail Lermontov: Выхожу один я на дорогу (Onto The Road I Walk Alone) — Dubna Boys Choir | Saturday Chorale ). It's a difficult solo for a boy soprano and Balashov performed it very creditably, as I remarked at the time – "that boy can really sing". Somebody else who can really sing and who sings "Onto The Road I Walk Alone" is the Russian Basso Profundo Vladimir Miller. Basso profondo singers possess the very low-ranging voicess – some such as Miller or the late Vladimir Pasjukov can sing very low indeed.

Miller who is a soloist at both the State Academic Cappella of St. Petersburg and the Male Choir of St.Petersburg was born in Siberia in 1964. He studied musicology at the  Leningrad State Conservatoire (now renamed  St. Petersburg State Conservatory) and upon graduating decided he wanted to sing professionally. He trained as a singer in Germany at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln (Cologne Music University) under Reinhard Leisenheimer and Kurt Moll. On his return to Russia he was invited to join  the two choirs in which he now sings and the in the Male Choir of the Valaam Institute for Choral Art since 1990. His YouTube channel is well worth a visit and is the source of this wonderful performance of Lermontov's song. The video and a very short list of resources on Mikhail Lermontov are both below the fold.  Enjoy :-).
