"Evgeny Nikitin delivered such soaring, charismatic, legati at this point that you might almost have believed his promise to renounce evil. He is precisely what the role and the opera needs: physically, vocally, a complete star." Edward Seckerson, The Independent

Under the direction of Christian Arming celebrated bass-baritone Evgeny Nikitin interprets some of his favourite Wagnerian roles. These selected pieces highlight the extent of the vocal possibilities that this Russian singer, a pillar of the Mariinsky Theatre, has delivered since his debut as a student, under Valery Gergiev, and that regularly triumph at the Met, the Paris Opera and in Munich. Nikitin hails from Murmansk, in the very north of Russia. His first love was to compose, sing and play drums and guitar in heavy metal bands, but his vocal gift has taken him in a very different direction. He was accepted at the Saint Petersburg Conservatory in 1992 and was soon combining his studies with his first solo engagements at the famed Mariinsky Theatre under Valery Gergiev’s direction. It wasn’t long before he was invited to major theatres and festivals through Europe, the Americas and Asia. 2002 marked his debut at the Metropolitan Opera in 'War and Peace'. Return invitations to New York include Colline, Pogner, Fasolt, Orest, Wanderer, Rangoni [Boris Godunov] and Klingsor. Recent engagements include 'Der fliegende Holländer' and Filipo, 'Don Carlo' in Baden Baden, 'Der Fliegende Holländer' in Toronto, Paris, Leipzig, Munich and Tokyo; Amfortas in Berlin and Valencia, Don Pizzaro in Valencia, Jochannen in Zurich, Telramund Amsterdam, Scarpia in Chicago and Boris Godunov in an acclaimed production at the Mariinsky.

He sings regularly at the Mariinsky theatre and at the ‘Stars of the White Nights Festival’ performing his favourite roles, Boris, Philip II, Holländer, Amfortas, Wotan /Das Rheingold, Wanderer, Don Giovanni… Upcoming highlights include his Vienna Staatsoper debut in 'Fidelio' and his debut with the Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam.

Götterdämmerung: Siegfried's Funeral March


Ben Heppner – recognized and one of the world’s leading Heldentenors - features a selection of the finest excerpts for tenor voice from Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen. Tracing the life of Wagner’s ultimate hero Siegfried from his father Siegmund (Die Walküre) to Siegfried’s youth (Siegfried) and death (Götterdämmerung), the album features famous excerpts including “Winterstürme wichen dem Wonnemond” and “Notung! Notung! Neidliches Schwert”, as well as orchestral excerpts such as Siegfried’s Funeral March. Supported by the excellent Staatskapelle Dresden and accomplished Wagner expert Peter Schneider, a regular guest conductor at the Bayreuth festival since the early 1980s with more than 100 conducted performances, Ben Heppner’s approach to Siegfried’s life is a supreme musical experience for every Wagner lover.

“… over the last 15 years, certain Wagner roles have been the "property" of Ben Heppner – of all things, a Wagner tenor who, in addition to the requisite power, has what might be called a "conventionally beautiful" voice which he actually uses with some discretion and imagination… It's a wonderful piece of singing…” Fanfare

“Ben Heppner is not scheduled to make his debut as Wagner's dwarf-beating, anvil-busting hero until 2008 (Aix, under Sir Simon Rattle) so the present disc will have to suffice as a rain check. It does so because the Canadian tenor (whom we never seem to see in the UK) is in prime vocal form and… is in constant search of original, unhackneyed line readings” Gramophone Magazine

“He seems to have everything – power, stamina, a bright, truly tenorial timbre… and he has grown up vocally, through Walther and Lohengrin into Tristan, at an intelligent pace, while mixing in some Italian roles to keep the voice supple. Now, on this recital, he tackles Siegfried and Siegmund, from what we hear, he's more than ready for them and Wagnerians should be waiting in line… His combination of lyricism and sheer power are unique today: his cries of “Wälse!” are as brilliant as his “Winterstürme” is caressing and tender. He also never resorts to crooning soft moments; what we hear is a true range of dynamics, in real voice. Here and throughout his diction is impeccable and the forward placement of his voice brings real urgency to his exclamation. On to Siegfried. Not enough praise can be lavished on his Forging Song. I, certainly, have never heard it sung as effortlessly, energetically, expressively, fearlessly, and with such true boyish joy before. He attacks the music and text heroically – this Siegfried seems indomitable – and his tone never falters: it's always big and bright… The “Forest Murmurs” shows us an entirely different side of Siegfried, tender and pensive, and Heppner delivers the solo to us with beautiful tone, enraptured… Heppner's amazement is palpable, and he phrases each mood-change and new sensation with great freshness of tone… Overall, the Staatskapelle Dresden plays with lustre and rhythmic thrust. This is a stunning CD, sure to delight and tease Wagnerians. It gets the highest recommendation.” International Record Review

“This is work of a resourceful, imaginative artist…” John W. Freeman, Opera News

“The Wagner items flow seamlessly, with perfect pacing in the Götterdämmerung Funeral Music… and a fine sense of mounting emotion in the Lohengrin Prelude and Tristan Prelude and Liebestod… the most unusual items… are of lighter fare, the Fledermaus Overture... wonderfully dapper and brilliantly played.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2010
