"A MASTERFUL TENOR"
- Frankfurter Allgemeine
For large parts of his career, Danish tenor Valdemar Villadsen has been focusing mostly on baroque and contemporary music. But in recent years, he has caused a sensation within the bel canto repertoire (primarily Rossini and Bellini). Renowned German music critic Jürgen Kesting from the Frankfurter Allgemeine has hailed Valdemar as “a masterful tenor”, and Opernwelt wrote “he reaches the many high notes with magnificent effortlessness”.
This autumn, Valdemar will focus on album recordings. He will, however, also find time to appear as a tenor soloist in Schmelzer’s Missa Dei Patris Benedicti at the Philharmonie Berlin in October, and in September he was covering the leading tenor role Blake in Bernard Fouccroulle’s opera Cassandra at the Royal Opera House La Monnaie in Brussels. He will also appear in a solo recital in Berlin with music by Rossini and Bellini.

“His voice never shows the slightest sign of fatigue, and he reaches the many high notes with magnificent effortlessness.”
“the young, future opera star Valdemar Villadsen”
“Valdemar Villadsen enchanted the audience with magnificent tenor splendor and acrobatic coloraturas…”
“In the leading role Valdemar Villadsen is both touching, surprising, strong and sensitive. And vocally a perfect cast for this demanding role.”
“… But also alto Silke Marchfeld and tenor Valdemar Villadsen presented themselves brilliantly. Villadsen in particular produced some exceptional coloratura passages.”
“The versatile tenor Valdemar Villadsen sang with nice, comfortable high notes. One can look forward to many great experiences with him.”
“… and both she and Villadsen as the young couple, sang modern bel canto with their beautiful voices as a dramatic effect.”
