Goose bumps were delivered by the tenor and actor Telman Guzhevsky, with a resonant column of sound which sounded in the film Anna Karenina by Joe Wright and at the Sochi Olympics 2014; he moved the audience and rejoiced their hearts to be granted a long standing ovation.The performance of Telman was greatly touching.Tutto Dressage 2015 & Wall Street International
Tenor Telman Guzhevsky offers plenty of light and shade as the Mephistophelian Dion and he uses his striking range with varying degrees of timbre and colour”‐ The Invader, Pat OKelly, The Independent, 27 May 2014
Telman Guzhevsky was the perfect foil as Alfredo. Passionate, impetuous, prone to anger and terribly mixed up, he wore his heart on his sleeve and bared his soul in some powerful arias and duets.” ‐ La Traviata, Roger Jones, June 22, 2011 Seen and Heard International.
Telman Guzhevsky has everything that belongs to this category: Great figure, a hefty pinch of machismo, an Italian voice to fall in love and as a bonus, the ability to act what he sings. Violettas would not be able to resist if one delivers the role of Alfredo as jubilant as he did in Cottbus” ‐Irene Constantin, Konzert zum Jahreswechsel im Cottbuser Staatstheater begeisterte das Publikum, 2010, Cottbus , Germany.
Guzhevsky has a silvery, lyric Italian voice. Currently his voice is rather closer in style to that of Alfredo Kraus than Placido Domingo, and Kraus is a fine model for a tenor of this style.” ‐ La Rondine September 2008 Robert Hugill, London UK.
“Telman Guzhevsky has just the right arrogant, swaggering charisma as the lascivious Duke.” ‐Rigoletto, Iford Festival, July 2010, This is Dorset.
“Top‐notch support came from tenor Telman Guzhevsky, who was splendid as Alfredo; the singer’s warm tone always admirable” ‐ La Traviata, October 2010, Dick ORiordan.
I was in tears during the first act when Telman sang as Rodolfo, one of the finest tenors I have heard as well as being a good actor” ‐ Member of public at Bury Court, UK. 2007.
“Telman Guzhevsky’s vacuum‐cleaner salesman turned spy brought considerable power to his tenor voice and evidently feels comfortable at the top of his range”. ‐ Our Man in Havana, Mark Bridle, Seen And Heard International 2004.
“Telman Guzhevsky's central character, Bramble, emerged as tour de force of whom Williamson and Greene would have been proud, vividly, fretfully characterised and wonderfully lucid”‐ Our Man in Havana by Malcolm Williamson. Opera Now, Roderic Dunnet, 2004.
