Petr Nekoranec & his Ave Maria at St Simon and Juda

Petr Nekoranec manifested his great abilities to interpret both lieder and operatic repertoire of various styles. With the bright and light colour of his lyrical tenor voice, he is an ideal interpret of baroque music, classical literature, as well as the pre-Verdi Bel Canto… Although Verdi’s operas are still far away for Nekoranec’s vocal inclinations and age, he assumed the demanding tenor aria Ingemisco from Verdi’s Requiem with honour. With this choice, he proved to be technically confident while the composition was the lovely climax of a very pleasant artistic evening.

47th Antonín Dvořák International Singing Competition Karlovy Vary (November 16 – 23,  2012)

Czech, Pardubice Conservatory student Petr Nekoranec received the 1st prize in category Lieder and 2nd prize as a Junior (1st and 3rd prizes were not awarded). The twenty-year-old Czech tenor is predetermined to lyrical tenor by both his voice and his looks. He sings with ease and carries a delicious tone; he is uniquely cultivated and has a good sense for drama. Should he diligently engage himself in precise coloraturas and protect his voice domain, he can soon make his way among the real elite.

Petr Nekoranec Concert: An Unforgettable Experience

The new singing phenomenon, tenor Petr Nekoranec introduced himself at the Karlovy Vary Gallery of the Arts. He captivated the audience with his singing and a sensitive interpretation of a wide range of lieders: W. A. Mozart, A. Dvořák, F. Schubert, B. Britten, L. Bernstein, etc. He was great as Don Ottavio (Mozart’s Don Giovanni), yet the audience was the most excited about his Aria of Vašek from Smetana’s The Bartered Bride inasmuch, the tenor had to sing it again.

Pardubice Conservatory and The Bartered Bride

The best came at the end: Petr Nekoranec’s Vašek felt like a revelation. The twenty-year-old young man portrayed an all-distinctive character. Audience laughed even in the non-comical parts of the opera while the tenor’s voice also sounded fully; it flew naturally over the orchestra with no trace of forza, each of his word was understandable and he was also the only one who sang without hesitations and with ease during tempos. Will stone theaters be fighting for such Vašek one day? I would not be surprised…

The surprise of the evening was Petr Nekoranec’s Vašek. His dramatic portrayal of this naïve, spoiled and cute boy was perfectly intensified by his cultivated tenor voice. No surprise he immediately gained favor of the audience.
