Reviews & Press

 
 

Basel TheatreV - Verdi - Rigoletto - Duke of Mantua

Pavel Valuzhin als Herzog von Mantua überzeugt mit einer Stimme, welche die Lebensfreude und auch das Leiden aufs schönste auszudrücken vermag. Kraftvoll in seinen berühmten Arien und voller Leidenschaft im großen Duett. Hier hat man einen Sänger, der in dieser Rolle auch darstellerisch überzeugt.

The tenor Pavel Valuzhin played a sympathetic duke. He posseses a lyrical voice with a clear timbre and good projection. He made his opening aria “Questa o quella” sound joyful and easy despite the challenging nature of tessitura; the tempi were quite fast but he managed to coronate the aria with a ringing B flat. He then proved that he could sing beautiful legato lines in a high tessitura during his duet with Gilda in Act one, and ascended effortlessly, and in one breath, to the B flats on the difficult line “d’invidia agli uomini,” emitting a secure top high D flat at the end of the scene on “Addio!” His interpretation of his second act aria “Ella mi fu rapita…parmi veder le lagrime” was sung with delicacy, beautiful mezza voce, and decrescendos, and navigated the passagio quite well after having done a couple of  pushups, handstands, and other major physical challenges demanded by the staging. His cabaletta “Possente amor mi chiama” was strong and energetic. He sang a playful “La donna è mobile” in Act three although he did not sang the traditional cadenza ending in a top B natural, instead singing the written low B (He had no problem with high notes, so I doubt this was the singer’s choice). He easily managed the high tessitura of the quartet “Bella figlia dell’amore,” delivering several ringing B flats.,

Hannover Staatsoper - Tchaikovsky, P. I. - Eugene Onegin - Lensky

Pavel Valuzhin versah den Lenski mit so schönen und feinen Tönen, dass es das Herz rührte. Sein Lenski ist ein junger, überschwänglicher Mann voller Verletzlichkeit. Auch hier konnte ich nur hingerissen zuhören.

Bregenzer Festspiele - Verdi - Rigoletto - Duke of Mantua

Pavel Valuzhin possède l’aplomb sans histrionisme d’un rôle qu’il allonge d’un « e di pensier » final particulièrement généreux.
