Reviews/Quotes

 

Des Grieux in Puccini's Manon Lescaut (Theater Osnabrück)

"Jeffrey Hartman as Des Grieux, who sings with a beautiful and expressive tenor voice..." Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung von Jan Kampmeier

 

"A bright timbre, soft and rounded in tone, Jeffrey Hartman, embodies the student Renato des Grieux." Ursula Decker-Bönniger, Online Musik Magazin


Calaf in Puccini's Turandot (Die Theater Chemnitz)

"The Vincero, sung by Calaf (Jeffrey Hartman), sounds immensely victorious... Jeffrey Hartman gave his Europe debut as Calaf in Chemnitz. 'Nessun dorma!' He finishes with an audible and inspiring H, and the tenor also likes the tenor with radiant tones.  A discovery!" Der Neue Merker - Christoph Suhre


"A Tatarenattitude knows this highly sensitive voice, but the sensitive prince is always present as a victorious man.  We have not been able to hear such a tenor for a long time...His voice is equal to the best tenors we can hear worldwide.  It was one, Jeffrey Hartman's, very successful European champion, who will hopefully follow many more engagements." Maja Kluy


"Jeffrey Hartman, a very mature "youth", beautiful tenor, present at all times, beautiful heights, fullness more then the Tatar prince...2001 we remember..." The Chemnitzer 

 

"Jeffrey Hartman, the American was immaculate with his soft warm timbre" The Chemnitzer Morgenpost - Victoria Winkel

 

"Jeffrey Hartman in Turandot-obsessed Calaf gave a strong, radiant tenor..." The New Music Newspaper - nmz Online

Tenor Soloist in Mozart's Great Mass in C Minor (Grosse Messe, K.V. 427)

Alfredo Germont in La Traviata - March 2014

"Jeffrey Hartman as Alfredo...brought a vocal richness and an acting importance to his role." Toby Grace, Out In New Jersey Magazine


​“...let loose with a powerful, ringing Italianate sound.” Milton Moore, The Day Connecticut

 

Canio in I Pagliacci

“The entire cast on Saturday put in a credible performance, but Jeffrey Hartman as Canio stood out.  An angry bull to the red rag of Nedda’s adultery with Silvio, he could hardly contain his violent hurt... His full-bodied and expansive voice was expressive and flexible, exposing wild pangs of jealousy.” Alan Yu, Wordpress.com, Bachtrack.com - January 7, 2013

 

Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly

“Jeffrey Hartman was suitably oleaginous at the outset, and effectively creepy in the scene leading to the consummation of the marriage.  His strong, dramatic voice held up well, and managed to evoke at least a little sympathy in his remorse when he discovers Butterfly’s lifeless body.” William Rankin, Opera Canada 

 

“Jeffrey Hartman, the American tenor who plays Pinkerton, can act as well as he can sing!  Hartman plays Pinkerton as a venal voluptuary - you can feel the waves of drunken lust radiating from him as he strips off his 15-year-old bride’s kimono.” Paula Simons, Edmonton Journal (Canada) 

 

Cavaradossi in Tosca

“Jeffrey Hartman as Cavaradossi, ...exhibited both vocal virtuosity and superb acting...”  The Harvard Art Review 

 

“Jeffrey Michael Hartman as Cavaradossi...strong vocally and dramatically...”  Larry Phillips, The Boston Musical Intelligencer

 

Rodolfo in La Bohème

“Jeffrey Hartman, as her lover, the poet Rodolfo, was ardent and youthful, boasting a warm tenor with dark undertones - an almost baritone quality.” Susan Pena, Reading Eagle 

 

Nardo and Lampionaio in Un Racconto Fiorinto

“...exhilarating, exciting and a tremendous voice.  Definitely a voice that will go far...” The Star Ledger
