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.
