Reviews & Press

 
 

Roma Teatro dell Opera - Prokofiev - The Fiery Angel - Mephistopheles

Maxim Paster als Mephistopheles ist ergreifend schrecklich und verführerisch zugleich.
 

- Thomas Migge , Klassik Info

Mefistofele di Maxim Paster, strepitoso, penetrante hohen Tenornel solco della tradizione istrionica – quando non isterica – d’inizio secolo (si pensi a Herodes nella Salome di Strauss o al Capitano nel Wozzeck di Berg, estreme propaggini del Mime wagneriano).

Milano La Scala - Mussorgsky - Khovanshchina - Scrivener

 El siempre remunerativo y difícil papel del escriba tocó al muy correcto Paster.
 

- Jorge Binaghi , Mundo Clasico

Read this article

In Act one, the tenor, Maxim Paster, gave a strong performance in the role of the Scribe. Menaced by Shaklovity and bullied by the crowd, Paster produced a convincing performance of a man trying to maintain his dignity whilst under stress. His voice was secure, with a pleasing timbre. He sang with a noble air, and projected the voice firmly.
