L´ape musicale: Tosca in Neapel “Dunque, dove eravamo rimasti?”

Luigi Raso

Yusif Eyvazov is Mario Cavaradossi with prized musicality, always attentive to phrasing, to nuance, that lightens a correct and safe emission;

Eyvazov is a stylistically flawless Cavaradossi, with a clean singing line, with elegant legato, perfectly in tune with his musical partner.

…You will immediately recognize the mastery of his vocal technique, his marked musicality and a refined melodic line, rich in interpretive insights, that undoubtedly make Eyvazov one of the most remarkable tenors {…}

Yusif Eyvazov dominated Friday’s Met premiere of Pikovaya Dama with a fearless, world-class portrayal

Christopher Corwin- Parterre Box

Yusif Eyvazov dominated Friday’s Met premiere of Pikovaya Dama with a fearless, world-class portrayal that instantly transformed the opera into December’s must-see event.

Ideally suited to this role (Hermann, “The Queen of Spades”)

Eric C. Simpson- New York Classical Review

…Yusif Eyvazov continues to build an impressive career at the Met. Here he appeared as Hermann, the brooding lover who’s always one hard glance away from the bottom of the Neva River. The Azerbaijani tenor is ideally suited to this role, thriving as he pushes his warm voice to its limit, where it takes on a golden brilliance.

Hermann is the sort of character for whom joyous rapture and mortal despair are emotions of the same color. It was here that Eyvazov was at his best, as the {…}
