PRESS QUOTES

« A Tsar is born. « Alexander Roslavets […] was impressive from his first solo passage and made a deep impression with his authentic, noble bass voice, conveying rich nuance through words and music, together with the overwhelming loneliness of power, with moments of meditation borne by a gentle legato. ».
Diapason

“(…) listening to Alexander Roslavets go through all the states of his character, with a stunning vocal presence, we imagined Chaliapin on this same stage, 111 years ago, for the inaugural season of the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées.”
ResMusica

« Alexander Roslavets unquestionably lives up to every expectation. This bass singer displays strong stage presence and the quality of his performance as a singer is enhanced by this stability and his noble timbre. His convincing performance is further strengthened by his emphasis on the use of words, together with a deep, far-ranging timbre. »
