Reviews & Press

 
 

Chelsea Opera Group - Verdi - I due Foscari

With his baritone revealing great richness and depth alongside many pleasing grains and nuances, his assumption of the role will live long in the memory

rich, pungent tone, expressing his sorrow at his inability to show his son more compassion.

Opera Australia - Mozart - Don Giovanni - Don Giovanni

But what sort of Don Giovanni was Ukrainian baritone Andrei Kymach? One who owned, even exulted, in his own shadow. His Act two serenade (“Deh vieni alla finestra, o mio Tesoro”), delivered because – let’s face it – he’s now trying to seduce Donna Elvira’s maid, was one of the most purely charming musical moments in the whole work – smooth, urbane, a relief, with its graceful musical arc as Kymach gave us the nobility of the title role peeping out from under the decadent surface. And it’s not as if this Don wasn’t aware of his depravity – “What have I done?” hissed Kymach in horrified tones over the Commendatore’s body in scene one. But later, unrepentant while fully aware of consequences, he assumed the same pose over the Commendatore’s prone gravestone likeness, kissed the likeness’ brow and drove the sword in again.

Making his Opera Australia debut is Ukrainian baritone Andrei Kymach. An excellent piece of casting as Kymach always came across as the powerful and menacing yet charming rogue. His vocal intonations were clear and always appropriate to the lyrics he was singing.

Andrei Kymach inhabits the role of Don Giovanni, portraying him as the vile seducer he is, prepared to trick and cheat his way to get what he wants in any situation. Kymach’s rich baritone captured the nuances of both Mozart’s score and Da Ponte’s libretto, and was a thrill to listen to.

The Grange Festival - Tchaikovsky - Pique Dame - Tomsky

Andrei Kymach as Count Tomsky almost stole the show in Act One with his narration of the tale of the Queen of Spades, a real tour de force, a feature Kymach brought off again in the final scene with his song to entertain his gambler friends, here given a very suggestive slant. In between this was a strongly drawn character, vividly sung.

As Count Tomsky, Ukrainian baritone Andrei Kymach demonstrated why he won the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World in 2019.  His narration of the Countess’s history in Act 1 and the entertainment his offers the gaggle of gamblers in Act 3 are superbly characterised and delivered with controlled artistry.

 When Andrei Kymach’s Count Tomsky strode up to narrate the tale of the old Countess and her “tri karti”, the secret sequence of three cards that will bring untold wealth, the sheer power and vitality of his baritone drew gasps from the audience.
