'Russian tenor Maxim Mironov makes an outstanding bel cantist'
Andrew Clark, FinancialTimes.com, 27 June 2014 ****

'There is some admirably no-nonsense singing from a committed cast led by Bruno Praticò, Maxim Mironov and Petya Ivanova'

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

Iphigénie en Tauride

Not to be underestimated, the high-lying tenor role of Achille which Maxim Mironov well negotiated with his bright vibrant tenor leggiero, clever register combinations, and the appropriate physique. Moore Parker, The Opera critic.com, 21 October 2014
