Reviews & Press

 
 

Handel - Messiah

Véloce et expressif, le baryton Johannes Weisser détonne parmi la distribution. Prêt à en découdre, remonté de véhémence, le chanteur apporte un souffle d’énergie radical en première ligne des solistes. En dialogue avec ses acolytes, il réussit à dessiner sa ligne vocale avec de belles vibrations sombres, appuyées et variantes, dans un charisme remarqué.

Drottningholm Theatre - Händel - Ariodante - Rè di Scozia

Johannes Weisser propose une interprétation vocale du Roi, dont la pulsion dramatique dans les récitatifs et les outrages latents (mais habilement intégrés) dans ses coloratures exigeantes s'unissent avec un ton doux et sincère que le baryton norvégien maîtrise sur toute la tessiture.

Oslo - Mozart - Don Giovanni

Weiss­er was a tremen­dous Gio­van­ni, com­mand­ing the stage through­out, both vocal­ly and dra­mat­i­cal­ly.  There’s a youth­ful­ness to the tone that I find absolute­ly engag­ing and ide­al for the part. He brought out a hand­some seduc­tive­ness in the ser­e­nade (...) with an impec­ca­ble lega­to and orna­men­ta­tion that enhanced the line.  The cham­pagne aria was dis­patched with extro­vert ease with­out com­pro­mis­ing on the beau­ty of the tone. So much of Giovanni’s char­ac­ter is cre­at­ed in the recita­tives and here Weiss­er real­ly used the text ful­ly to illus­trate the char­ac­ter, there­by giv­ing him the impact to car­ry the show.
