Maxim Paster as Mephistophelles in Fiery Angel
back to artists
Deutsche Oper Berlin - Boris Godunov - Shuysky, February 2019

Maxim Paster ist mit seinem Charaktertenor ein herrlich schmieriger Intrigant und Strippenzieher als Fürst Schuiskij. 

- Kaspar Sannemann, Das OpernmagazinRead the article


Opera National de Paris - Boris Godunov - Shuysky, June 2018

L’acidité et le tremblement de la voix du ténor Maxim Paster traduisent bien l’hypocrisie de Shuisky.

- Bachtrack, Manuel GaulhiacRead the article

"Parmi toute la galerie des petits rôles, personne ne démérite. ... des Chouiski (Maxim Paster) plus venimeux"

- Diapason Magazine, Emmanuel DupuyRead the article

"Le reste de la distribution est digne de cette splendide incarnation et l’on ne résiste pas à mentionner tous les chanteurs de ce fulgurant drame humain et politique : ... le venimeux et claudiquant Chouïsky de Maxim Paster"

- La Croix, Bruno SerrouRead the article

On admire de trouver timbre aussi franc et émissions si naturelles, si peu déformées chez les deux ténors, Dmitry Golovnin (Grigori) et Maxim Paster (Prince Chouïski). 

- L'oeil et l'oreille, André TubeufRead the article

Parfaitement reconnaissable dans les rôles de ténors dominants et manipulateurs, Maxim Paster maintient constamment une allure doctorale au Prince Chouïski, diction précise, loin de toute caricature, et timbre empreint d’une subtile langueur caressante.

- Formal HautRead the article

Maxim Paster compose un Chouïski diablement ambivalent 

- Artistik Rezo, Hélène KuttnerRead the article


Bavarian State Opera Munich - Boris Godunov - Shuysky

Maxim Paster war als heuchlerischer, den Sturz des Zaren bewusst vorantreibender Fürst Schuiskij ebenfalls sehr überzeugend. Er sang die Partie mit klarem, ausdrucksvollem Tenor.

- Gisela Schmöger, Der Neue MerkerRead the article


Opera National de Paris - Snow Maiden - Tsar Berendey, 2016/17

[...] while Maxim Paster (replacing Ramón Vargas at pretty short notice) sang plangently in the high tessitura demanded of Tsar Berendey. 

- Mark Pullinger, BachtrackRead the article
