"Valdemar Villadsen has an emotionally rich sound, sustained notes, pure, warm and bright, that brings heaven to earth and stops time for a few moments. Hopefully the record companies will pick up on this man."

A VERSATILE WINTER

Valdemar has many times been hailed for being vocally and artistically a very versatile tenor: Among others, the famous German opera critic Jürgen Kesting from the Frankfurter Allgemeine has described Valdemar as “technically and stylistically a masterful tenor”; and this winter definitely confirms Valdemar’s versatility.

 

He will appear in concerts with baroque music such as Handel’s Messiah with the Berlin Baroque Orchestra and Bach’s Weihnachts-Oratorium with the South Denmark Philharmonic, and later he will appear in bel canto gala concerts in Zaragoza and Oviedo as well as in several concerts with contemporary classical music throughout Germany.
