Rossini

Il barbiere di Siviglia

New National Theatre Tokyo

'Maxim Mironov made a successful Tokyo debut, and just as he wooed Rosina with his singing, he sedcued the audience throughout the show, especially with his impressive final aria....Mironov proved himself a strongly emerging Rossini tenor.'

Ju Hyuk Kim, Bach Track, 2 December 2016

Salieri

Falstaff

Wiener Staatsoper

'Cerniera tra i baritoni e i soprani è, infine, il tenore Maxim Mironov come Mr. Ford: alte referenze rossiniane e provvidenziale adozione italiana ne fanno, tout court, un mordace modello di vulcanica eleganza.'

Francesco Lora, L'ape musicale, 23 October 2016

'Maxim Mironov gestaltet die Partie ihres Gatten mit schlankem Tenor, der in den Höhen enorme Strahlkraft entwickelt. '

Thomas Molke, ONM, October 2016

Rossini Festival

Wildbad

'Maxim Mironov, der in diesem Jahr in Bad Wildbad auch noch ein Belcanto-Konzert mit Arien vorstellt, die Komponisten wie Rossini und Donizetti für den Ausnahmetenor Rubini komponiert haben, kann auch in der Partie des Gernando unter Beweis stellen, dass ihm die hohe Tenorlage großartig in der Kehle liegt. Schon bei seiner Auftrittskavatine begeistert Mironov mit strahlend ausgesungenen Höhen und reißt das Publikum zu Begeisterungsstürmen hin.' Thomas Molke, Online Musik Magazin, July 2016

Rossini

L'Italiana in Algeri

Theatre du Capitole Toulouse

'Son amoureux le ténor Maxim Mironov est un Lindoro de rêve tant vocalement que scéniquement. Le ténor russe a une voix agréablement sucrée sans mièvrerie. Lui aussi a un timbre d’une homogénéité parfaite et vocalise admirablement. C’est pourtant son legato et son utilisation de nuances et des couleurs qui font tout le prix de ses délicieuses cavatines.' Hubert Stoecklin, Classique News, 1 June 2016
'Maxim Mironov (Lindoro) est une superbe surprise lyrique, dès la cavatine initiale montrant l'excellence du ténor, maintes fois salué...' Anaclase, 17 May 2016

Rossini

Otello CD

Dynamic CDs

"More important than usual in Rossini's version, the role of Rodrigo is delivered with accoplishmen and a dulcet quality by Maxim Mironov." George Hall, Opera Magazine, March 2016

Otello

Theater an der Wien

"Die dunkel gewordene Mittellage gibt der Rolle ein markant männliches Profil und bildet einen klanglich klar abgegrenzten Gegenpol zu Maxim Mironovs hellem Rodrigo, bei dem man sich passagenweise eine legatoreichere Phrasierung gewünscht hätte." Rainhard Wiesinger, Klassik, 21 February 2016
"Begeistert war das Publikum auch von Maxim Mironov, der als Rodrigo im Hit dieser Oper, „Ah come mai non senti“, mit Virtuosität und hellem, weichem Rossini-Timbre gleichermaßen überzeugte." Bach Track, 26 February 2016
"Maxim Mironov brought a “classical” Rossini instrument and technique..." Moore Parker, The Opera Critic, 19 February 2016
"Als braves Sohnchen Rodrigo hat der Tenor Maxim Mironov viele starke Szenen." Peter Jarolin, Kurier, 21 February 2016
"Letzterer spielt zwar kaum eine Rolle m Drama, kompensiert dies aber mit rasenden Koloraturen in aberqitzigen Hohen. Der Russen Maxim Mironov scheint das kaum Muhe zu kosten." Thomas Gotz, Kleine Zeitung Steiermark, 21 February 2016

La Gazzetta

Rosini Opera Festival

'Maxim Miranov was vocally secure as Alberto, the rich boy.  His O lusinghiero amor was the memorable bel canto moment of the evening...' Jack Buckley, Seen and Heard, 18 August 2015

La Cenerentola

Teatro di San Carlo

'Considered one of the most interesting Rossini tenors of his generation, Mironov was impressive as the Prince with his bel canto style of singing, consisting of rapidly ascending and descending melodic lines, with great high notes.' Lorenzo Fiorito, Back Track, 30 June 2015

Mozart

Don Giovanni

L'Opera de Monte-Carlo

"Maxim Mironov (Don Ottavio) a gagné en largeur vocale ces dernières
années, et sa ligne de chant toujours soignée en fait l’un des meilleurs titulaires
actuels, alors que Giacomo Prestia est un Commandeur à la voix
autoritaire et bien stable". Francios Jestin, Revue De Presse, 28 March 2015
"Assai bravo Maxim Mironov, un Don Ottavio che in mezzo ad un cast vocale che tende a far la voce grossa figura con un volume di voce...  lo stile è sovrano e l’eleganza con cui intona le arie (la seconda delle quali, “Il mio tesoro”, infarcita da una cadenza in acuto che svela le reali possibilità di una voce che sappiamo primeggiare nel repertorio rossiniano) confermano in lui un cantante che ha nell’eleganza e nel bel porgere una stimabile cifra mozartiana. Anche nel cast femminile colpisce la differenza di approccio stilistico". Alessandro Mormile, Revue De Presse, 28 March 2015
"Le ténor russe Maxim Mironov campe un Ottavio aux aigus sûrs, avec une longueur de souffle et une faconde acquises au contact des compositeurs italiens de l'Ottocento". Emmanuel Andrieu, Revue De Presse, 28 March 2015

Rossini

La Cenerentola

Washington National Opera

Mr. Mironov possesses an exquisitely supple, lyrical, almost flowery voice and his singing was perfectly beautiful on Saturday evening. Terry Ponnick, Communities Digital News, 10 May 2015
Isabella's romantic counterpart, the prince charming, is Don Ramiro, sung on Saturday night by Russian tenor Maxim Mironov who certainly won me over with his clear, light voice that matched Leonard for letting the ornamental passages shine throughout the score. Mironov was also convincing as the disguised prince who switches places with his valet to see if a young lady is truly worthy of becoming his princess. Jeffrey Walker, Broadway Opera World, 11 May 2015
Particularly pleasing was the Prince, or Don Ramiro, of Maxim Mironov, a tall tenor with a gentle whitish sound in a most respectable company debut. 
Anne Midgette, Washington Post, 10 May 2015
Mironov was splendid as the Prince and his bel canto tenor voice proved a model for this style of singing with its rapidly ascending and descending ornamentation and beautiful high notes. No wonder he is considered one of the best Rossini tenors of his generation! Susan Galbraith, DC Theatre Scene, 12th May 2015
..."Ramiro, portrayed here by tenor Maxim Mironov. Mr. Mironov possesses an exquisitely supple, lyrical, almost flowery voice and his singing was perfectly beautiful". Terry Ponick, Communities Digital News, 11 May 2015
