Reviews & Press

Mirjam Helin International Singing Competition 2019

Russian-born German baritone Stefan Astakhov (b. 1997), the youngest of the competitors by some margin, showed himself to be an astonishing talent in Billy Budd’s “Look! Through the port…” and a lively, cheeky “Largo al Factotum”.

Bachtrack

Stefan Astakhov (21) is called a natural talent. He certainly is, but the competition is not won by a natural talent. Astakhov's baritone easily fills the hall, and he is a ruthless performer. The arias he sang were marked by great emotions and the pleasure of performing. This man is made of music!

Ton und Erklärung Сompetition 2018

Als Stefan Astakhov aufhört zu singen, schließt er für einen Moment die Augen. Es ist eine Geste, die Erleichterung und das langsame Herausgleiten aus völliger Versunkenheit ausdrückt. Aus einer Versunkenheit in Werke von Bach, Brahms, Schubert und Rachmaninow mit allem, was dazugehört: Großes Drama, Heiterkeit, Tragik. „ Der hat alles gegeben“, sagt einer der Zuschauer in den hinteren Sitzreihen – und hat recht: Der 20-jährige hat gerade tatsächlich alles gegeben und bei diesem Wettbewerb Eindruck hinterlassen, als er mit seinem Bariton das komplette Studio akustisch einnahm.
