"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." (Klassik.com)
This says all about this great bass Hiroshi Matsui. Hiroshi Matsui has all the big basso-roles in his repertoire. He is a constant guest at the New National Theatre in Tokyo.
