One fragment from the Kurmatchev's review of the "Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District" on the Salzburg Festival.
" Very significant and definitely, one of the most successful was the performance of Maxim Paster as Zinoviy Borisovitch.
As we know, Maxim has performed it so many times on so many stages, but the energy that he creates, his feeling of the character, his natural capability of adding the melodramatic details (without which this part may become almost invisible) - Maxim used all of the above and he did his best. Maxim is the only singer, who can make this part the key one in the entire Shostakovich's opera.
