JAROMÍR Nosek | bass
"...His rich voice opens up in the low notes like a light of hope..."
"... Jaromír Nosek contributed with bass solos, which were at an impressive harmony with both ensembles. He is rightly considered the top in the interpretation of baroque music in the Czech republic..."
"...Not only was he able to show an adequately excited expression,
he was, moreover, able to maintain the comprehensibility of words.
He also proved to be a competent actor with impressive and forceful facial expression and creative gestures. He should be, nevertheless, mainly praised for his respectable vocal range, which he used in quite a few arias...“
