“Here is a singer of unnerving ability, blessed with a muscular but flexible sound, plenty of tonal color and technical proficiency -- not to mention a full helping of charismatic good looks.”
Joshua Kosman, The San Francisco Chronicle, August 19, 2003

Jay Nordlinger, The New York Sun, September 25, 2008

Peter G. Davis,, September 25, 2008

Berlioz Requiem Festival de Musique Classique Montreux-Vevey 2008

"Le Sanctus révèle la belle prestation du ténor Joseph Kaiser. Partie vocale absolument homicide, il s’acquitte pourtant de sa difficile tâche avec une approche empreinte d’une grande sensibilité tranchant avec le peu d’implication noté jusqu’ici." ... full review
- Jacques Schmitt, Resmusica, 02/09/2008


Eugene Onegin (DVD)

“Joseph Kaiser offers a compelling Lensky, sung with a strong lyric tenor…”
George Loomis, Opera, December 2008

“Et que dire du Lenski déchirant, romantique, subtil, de Joseph Kaiser? Beau comme un dieu, le Tamino de Kenneth Branagh est ténor certes mais aussi ancien baryton, et cela s’entend : velours vocal et présence scénique font notamment de sa « lettre » d’avant duel un moment magique.”
Sophie Roughol,, September 2008

- Sarah Bryan Miller, Saint Louis Post-Dispatch, August 10, 2008

“Joseph Kaiser is excellent as the energetic Yonas, whose appearance in Act 2 brings greater musical vigour...”
- George Loomis, Financial Times, August 4 2008 

“Joseph Kaiser's brilliant, passionate tenor is a fine match for Yonas, and Kaiser moves with the awkwardness of an angry teenage boy. ” ... full review
- Lisa Hirsch, San Francisco Classical Voice, July 29 200 


Berlioz Requiem with the Berliner Philharmoniker

“Joseph Kaiser sings the “Sanctus” like a Lohengrin from heaven.”
Sybill Mahlke, Der Tagesspiegel, May 17, 2008

“The tenor Joseph Kaiser sang the work’s only solo movement with ardent, pure ecstasy.”
Peter Uehling, Berliner Zeitung, May 17, 2008

“Joseph Kaiser provided in his “Sanctus” solo a tastefully solid mixture of bright tenor enamel and heroic spirituality.”
Frank Bayer,, May 17, 2008

“From high above all this, the robust, melodious sound of the solo tenor fell down like dew. The Canadian Joseph Kaiser lent his generous, penetrating voice.”
Klaus Geitel, Berliner Morgenpost, May 19, 2008
