Press

“The most confident singing came from the Serbian bass, Sava Vemic, as Rodolfo. Mr. Vemic brought a mellow, full-bodied voice, a feeling for bel canto phrasing and commanding stage presence to his portrayal.”
February 10, 2016

 

“La palme de la révélation revient à la voix de basse de Sava Vemic. Son Sparafucile est parfait de justesse et d'autorité, riche de graves profonds et d'une grande maîtrise des nuances. Le chanteur serbe affiche une ligne de chant épatante de maîtrise, doublée d'un charisme qui en impose."
Olyrix in Verbier festival, August 2018
