Reviews of Kurt Lehmann Tenor

“Lehmann wisely left his powerhouse operatic voice at the door for a refreshingly modest rendition of Et in spiritum sanctum. His more demure delivery suited the movement perfectly and he was at his most musically elegant.” - Gwenda Namerofsky

“Kurt lehmann as Ruggero is proving to be one of Canada's most dependable tenors. He has the money notes and clear, clean romantic delivery.” - Classical 96.3 FM - Paula Citron

His honey toned tenor voice is always a pleasure to hear, displaying a beautiful ease and fluid expressiveness even in his top-most register.” - Holly Harris, Winnipeg Free Press (Stories that Sing, Manitoba Opera Gala, 2006)

“ was Lehmann who had the audience in the palm of his hand during his aria in the second act, one of the best moments of the night.” - Naomi Lester, The Times Colonist

“...the brief but crucial encounters between Iiago and Cassio were very well handled and had the dramatic weight to do their job of driving the tragedy along. ” - Wayne Gooding, Opera News(Opera Ontario, OTELLO)

“Lehmann’s voice and easy charm likely made more than a few ladies in the audience swoon. His solo aria Grüss mir mein Wein particularly showed off his lyrical and smoothly textured voice, as he easily handled the upper register without strain or effort. Flawless diction and a gracious presence only added to a wonderfully strong performance.” - Holly Harris, Winnipeg Free Press (Salute to Vienna, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, 2006)

“Tenor Kurt Lehmann had the incredibly physically taxing part as John. He was astonishing. How he reached again and again for the very summits of tessitura was a marvel.” - Hugh Fraser, Hamilton Spectator

“Kurt Lehmann has a great time as hero, Barinkay, he sang confidently and with great charisma and charm.” - Robert Mitchell, CBC Radio One

“Ein neuer Stern am Musikhimmel - Tenor Kurt Lehmann...
...Gleich nach den ersten Takten von Franz Lehars (“Dein ist mein ganzes Herz”) wurde mir bewusst, dass der Tenor Kurt Lehmann eine blendende Karriere vor sich hat. Der gut aussenhande, hochgewachsene junge Mann (“drop dead gorgeous”) überzeugt mit seiner wunderbaren sonoren Stimme und Ausdrucksfahigkeit.” - Rosemarie Meyer, Deutsche Press (Viennese Holiday Concert, Orchestra Toronto, 2004)
