Reviews & Press

 
 

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

Maxim Paster als Mephistopheles ist ergreifend schrecklich und verführerisch zugleich.

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).

Maxim Paster has flair and panache as Mephistopheles and fills the scene with his presence both physically and vocally.

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.
