His tremendous baritone roams a wide emotional frontier, from tenderness to ferocity with equal ease. Reaching down to a velvety, growling bass, he was capable of floating the long vowels at the top of his range before biting off the final consonants. Devouring the role, Konieczny is everything opera should be, certainly Wagner’s operatic vision of the Gesamptkunstwerk. On a stageful of dazzling singers, he is also—and perhaps foremost—an actor. Konieczny’s super power is his ability to inhabit and reveal his character from the inside out. Christina Waters/  OPERAWIRE

„Kiedy Tomasz Konieczny zagrał w filmie u Andrzeja Wajdy, poczuł, że dobrze wybrał, ale dziś na najlepszych scenach i estradach Europy robi błyskotliwą karierę w zupełnie innym fachu…”


„Tomasz Konieczny podbił Chicago. Prasa amerykańska niesłychanie zgodnie chwali premierę „Wozzecka” w Lyric Opera w Chicago i odtwórcę tytułowej roli – Tomasza Koniecznego”


„Tomasz Konieczny zebrał entuzjastyczne recenzje po debiucie w roli Wotana w dwóch pierwszych częściach „Pierścienia Nibelunga” Wagnera w wiedeńskiej Staatsoper. Austriacka prasa pisze o polskim śpiewaku, że jest fantastyczny, imponujący i perfekcyjny.” RZECZPOSPOLITA, 20.06.2013

A Struggling Soldier and a Seductive Beauty: Two Tales of Yearning Vienna State Opera Presents `Wozzeck` and `Salome` By ANTHONY TOMMASINI MARCH 2, 2014

(…) Tomasz Konieczny, was excellent, bringing stentorian power and unusual dignity to this prophet, who pays with his life for resisting Salome’s twisted sexual needs and usually comes off as a pompous fanatic (…)

Vienna State Opera's SALOME @ Carnegie March 03, 2014

(…) Tomasz Konieczny was a revelation as Jochanaan. Mr. Konieczny has a voice of exceptional power which he unleashed with unflagging vitality, establishing the character as a vocal bulwark of godliness in a perverse and vulgar world. His thundering condemnations of Herodias sung from offstage built our anticipation for the great dialogue between Salome and the prophet.

Once onstage, Mr. Konieczny’s voice seemed to quadruple in amplitude; the louder Maestro Nelsons drove the orchestra, the more powerful the bass-baritone’s voice seemed to become. But the singer was also capable of deeply-felt lyricism, as in the great passage where he tells the princess: „Go seek Him. He is in a boat on the sea of Galilee, and He talketh with His disciples. Kneel down on the shore of the sea, and call unto Him by his name.

When he cometh to thee, and to all who call on Him He cometh, bow thyself at His feet and ask of Him the remission of thy sins.” Mr. Konieczny was so incredibly persuasive here that I thought I might start going to church again. But Jochanaan’s gentle aspect swiftly vanishes as Salome continues to tell him of her lascivious desires for him. In a rage of towering indignation, Jochanaan hurls his final imprecation at her: „Du bist verflucht!” („You are accursed!”) and here Mr. Konieczny unleashed a final note of staggering power which he then, as the orchestral tidal wave came crashing in, amazingly sustained with a phenomenal crescendo. As he made his exit, I sensed that the audience desperately wanted to burst into applause; of course it didn’t happen, but it should have (…)
