Martin Dreyer, OPERA MAGAZINE - UK, 2010
 
 
(...) Marcello (Marcin Bronikowski) was also excellent and very well cast. Bronikowski was probably the best Marcello I'd seen, he was visibly affected by Musetta's presence, even down to his obsessive painting in act 4 (Andy Warhol style pictures pinned up all over the flat). (...)

Antony Lias, OPERA BRITANIA, Scottland 2009
 
(...) Of the other players, Marcin Bronikowski as Sergeant Belcore gave as fine a demonstration of a human cockerel as any audience could hope for. He got the mixture of bluster, pride and roguishness, which the role demands, in perfect proportion as well as demonstrating his superb commanding voice. (...)

MOZART OPERA GALA, BALTIC OPERA, Gdansk (PL)

(...) It was Marcin Bronikowski's singing that added glamour to the opera gala. We have not heard such a baritone in Gdansk for a long time. He has got a beautiful, melodious, warm voice, wonderful musicality, good technique and meaningful gesture. It is a singer with a developed artistic personality and extra-ordinary musical intuition. Bronikowski proved to be a great performer of Mozart's lyrical style, showing the whole range of precise phrasing in his interpretation. Everything in his performance seemed to be perfectly natural. He sang in an open, well-placed voice, presenting beautiful bel canto, free from unnecessary vocal maneuvers. Wonderful! (...)

Katarzyna Chmura, GAZETA WYBORCZA, 2006



G. PUCCINI - LA BOHÉME, Crocow Opera, Cracow (PL)

(...) Marcin Bronikowski was the jewel of the performance. He delighted the audience with his beautiful voice of an interesting timbre and, above all, with the artistic truth he showed in his character - the painter Marcello. He was cheerful and sympathetic, head over heels in love and furiously jealous at the same time. His Marcello was memorable.(...)

Anna Wo?niakowska, DZIENNIK POLSKI, 2005



R. LEONCAVALLO - I PAGLIACCI, Castel Opera, Szczecin (PL)

(...) Marcin Bronikowski enriched every single word, synchronizing it perfectly with appropriate gesture. He passed fluently from one register to another and phrased superbly showing great respect for each note. His beautiful baritone used with great mastery and remarkable interpretation of the part of Silvio made powerful impression in the duet Nedda! Silvio, a quest'ora?. He is simply an artist of great class and stage presence. Bravo! (...)

Wilfried Górny, MUZYKA 21, 2005

(...) Marcin Bronikowski's performance as Nedda's lover, Silvio, could be an example to other singers. The world famous baritone proved that Italian verism can be sung with crystal Mozartian phrase and regard for beautiful sounds, like in bel canto. Neither did he strain his voice nor overacted the part but he still expressed all the emotions evoked by music. Additionally, he paid greater than his colleagues attention to the libretto, Italian diction and interpretation of music.(...)

J. MASSENET - LE ROI DE LAHORE, Teatro "LA FENICE", Venice (I)

(...) Much better performance came from men, and especially the Polish baritone Marcin Bronikowski as Scindia.

G. DONIZETTI - IL PARIA, CD review

(...) In the Lablache role of Zarete, the baritonal Marcin Bronikowski manages the bass-baritone tessitura of the role convincingly, pouring out gorgeous tone, and packing a big emotional wallop in both his big Act II scena, his outburst in the finale, as well as in the scenes of conflicted emotion and anguish with his son (...)

He is very professional, very polished and very amusing. For a long time we haven't heard in Cape Town such a beautiful baritone (...)
