Reviews

“Andreas Bauer Kanabas reaps several volleys of bravo calls because he sings a really outstanding König Marke: with a beautifully sounded, always clean and stable intonation of the bass and an impressive reduction in volume as a sonic sign of emotional attrition and disappointment over the betrayal of Tristan, whom Isolde recruited him as a bride  and then betrayed him with her.” (Tristan und Isolde, Oper Frankfurt)

FAZ

“…Bauer Kanabas makes a world-class performance as a singer.” (Tristan und Isolde, Oper Frankfurt)
