Aix-en-Provence Festival - Prokofiev - The Fiery Angel - Mephistopheles / Agrippa

Andreï Popov campe un Méphistophélès, et de manière plus retenue un Agrippa von Nettesheim, de saltimbanque. Il se donne en spectacle, de manière outrancière et outrageante, mobilisant un organe sonore et ductile jusqu’au cri. Le timbre est doré comme une icône orthodoxe.
