Reviews

"David Meyer, with the varied palette of his powerful, yet flexible baritone voice, was equally at home in the demonic ravings of Salieri as well as the ludicrous, comical Don Belflor."

Der Landbote, Winterthur, Switzerland (December 11, 2002)

"One voice stood out: David Meyer gave the dictator a smug machismo with his pliant baritone voice. He made Maria, the would-be assassin, submissive with his charms."

Wiesbadener Tagblatt, Wiesbaden, Germany (May 15, 2001)

"Bloomington is strong on singers . . . mezzo Kimberley Gratland James and baritone David Meyer were both excellent in Arias and Barcarolles."

London Financial Times (April 21, 1999)

"At the center was a finely wrought performance by David Meyer, a gifted young baritone with a mind and a stage sense of his own."

Peter Jacobi, The Herald-Times (October 26, 1999)

"David Meyer sang with great emotion and accuracy as Wozzeck."

WFIU - George Walker's Opera and Theater Review (Broadcast from October 23rd to 28th, 1999)

"Doctoral candidate David Meyer sang with true perfection."

Gabriel Lewin, Indiana Daily Student (February 09, 1999)

"David Meyer earned the favor of the audience as Dandini, the flamboyant valet of the prince. Here's a performer who held back little, neither his nicely-turned bass baritone nor his energetic clowning."

Peter Jacobi, The Herald-Times (February 16, 1999)

Finally, baritone David Meyer flowered into a finished performer in the course of the session. He has a large, resonant and flexible voice. His aria from Handel's opera "Ezio" developed into a grand artistic entity. Opened up to the meaning of the text, he made the music breath-taking for the audience (not for him, though). The contrasts of mood and sense were a great pleasure to hear.
