"Greatest respect deserved - and not for the first time - Hiroshi Matsui in the role of Gurnemanz. Being taken up entirely in the role, he offered vocally a true masterpiece. With impressive care and discipline he interpreted the very large bass part to the smallest detail elaborated and with great musical verse. Matsui is a permanent member of the house of an invaluable asset and outdid himself again."
This is all you need to know about this great bass. Hiroshi Matsui has all the big basso roles in his repertoire. He is a constant guest at the New National Theatre in Tokyo. With his high expertise he is a rarity on all international stages.
