Yusif Eyvazov

Yusif Eyvazov is Azerbaijani dramatic tenor, who completed his advanced studies in Italy. There he took part in master classes with renowned opera singers such as tenor Franco Corelli and soprano Ghena Dimitrova. Since then there is hardly a major opera house that has not yet invited him to sing, including the Berlin, Munich and Vienna State Operas, Milan’s La Scala, Opera National de Paris, Royal Opera House, Metropolitan Opera, Bolshoi and Mariinsky theatres etc. The unique sound of his voice, described as “metallic, stentorian and markedly Italianate” (L.A. Times), and outstanding stage presence allow him to combine active opera career with frequent concert performances.

  • Yusif Eyvazov made for a magnificent Cavardossi, the slightly rakish, charming painter. And oh my goodness, his voice – that ample generosity of tone, the fully enunciated Italian vowels, those powerfully sustained high notes were all remarkable. But there was something more too, the depth of death-defying passion in his arias, “Recondita armonia” and especially “E lucevan le stelle”. The catch of his voice as love (and hopelessness) overwhelmed him was moving to hear. It may be melodrama, but there’s a reason why it gets to an audience every time; for moments, you lose your critical reflection and are wrapped up in the glories of the human voice (and the passions of the human condition). - Bachtrack
