In recent years Valdemar has made a name for himself as a Bach Evangelist – the leading role in J.S. Bach’s Passions – and he has performed the Matthäus-Passion (St Matthew Passion) in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Iceland, Italy and Germany. Previously Valdemar has chosen to focus on only one Bach Passion at a time, but in 2019, for the first time ever, Valdemar will appear as the Evangelist in both the Matthäus-Passion and the Johannes-Passion (St John Passion) within the same Easter period.
He will perform the Matthäus-Passion with the baroque orchestra Concerto Farinelli and the Johannes-Passion with the Neues Kammerorchester Potsdam.
