Verdi - La traviata - Giorgio Germont, Glyndebourne Touring Festival

A man certainly in and of the world is Russian baritone Roman Burdenko’s Giorgio Germont, an impassioned father pursuing his family’s interests with a direct vocal force that serves to emphasise the isolation of the young lovers. His reception at the end of the first night suggests that he has certainly won the audience’s hearts.

- Michael Dervan, The Irish TimesRead the article

Russian baritone Roman Burdenko, credible as representing an older generation and delivering authentic bel canto vigour as Germont senior; his duet with Violetta in the second act is a real expressive highlight.

- George Hall, The GuardianRead the article

As his father, Roman Burdenko exudes a gravitas of voice and bearing that belie his comparatively tender years (according to his Mariinsky biog, he's just 30); the realisation that he's intervened in a situation far more complex than he originally thought appears to come rather earlier than usual, and he sustains and develops it with conviction.

- Katherine Cooper, What’s on StageRead the article

Roman Burdenko's considerably aged-up Germont makes a powerful impression with his dark, firm baritone from the moment he enters. This father-figure maintains a subtle psychological grip without resorting to obvious bullying.

- John Allison, The TelegraphRead the article


Grand Théâtre de Genève - Orleanskaya Deva - Dunois, 2016/17

Roman Burdenko est un Dunois admirable d’agressivité, et l’on comprend qu’il ranime l’énergie défaillante de son roi.

- Laurent Bury, Forum OperaRead the article

Roman Burdenko, as Captain Dunois, is also excellent, with a strong, resonant baritone.

- Elodie Olson-Coons, BachtrackRead the article

Moments de grâce comme seul l’opéra peut en dispenser grâce à la présence conjointe de deux immenses barytons russes : Roman Burdenko et Boris Pinkhasovich. Le premier, déjà applaudi à tout rompre dans la même ville en Nabucco, démontre une fois de plus son indiscutable stature vocale. [...] Le timbre demeure toujours aussi beau, le geste vocal large et généreux, et l’aigu frappe toujours par son arrogante aisance.

- Alexandre, Classique NewsRead the article

À commencer par Roman Burdenko (Dunois) dont la voix tranchée se partage la vedette avec celle de Boris Pinkhasovich (Lionel), tous deux survolant la distribution.

- Jacques Schmitt, Res MusicaRead the article

Le valeureux Dunois, conseiller et ami du Roi Charles VII, est incarné par le baryton Roman Burdenko, dont la voix ronde occupe l’espace sonore sans effort.

- Emmanuel Deroeux, OlyrixRead the article
