THE WASHINGTON POST (Bach B-Minor Mass) (2017)
«"Handel's 'Dixit Dominus' ... benefited from vivid solos by ... tenor Jason Rylander ..."»
«The Mozart was simply electrifying. Drawn from the chorus, the superb soloists [Clara Rottsolk, Meg Bragle, Jason Rylander, and James Shaffran] were luminous and well-matched as the emotional cast of the work moved between solemnity or disquieting fear to unbounded ecstasy."»


Jason Rylander has been praised by the Washington Post for his “strong, clear tenor” and for performances that “coupled sonorous warmth and emotional depth.” A frequent interpreter of early music, he has performed many of Bach’s cantatas, the B-Minor Mass, Christmas Oratorio, and the Magnificat. Season highlights include an acclaimed debut as the Evangelist in Bach's St. John Passion in Baltimore and as soloist for four performances of the same with Musikanten Montana. Jason regularly sings with some of the East Coast’s leading early music ensembles, including the Washington Bach Consort, Bach Sinfonia, Handel Choir of Baltimore, Mountainside Baroque, Opera Lafayette, and the TENET/Green Mountain Project. Recent solo performances include Handel’s Messiah and Acis and Galatea, Haydn’s Creation, the Monteverdi Vespers, the Mozart Requiem, and a concert of Dowland’s lute songs on the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage. Jason has also performed at the American Bach Soloists Festival, Amherst Early Music Festival, and the Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute.
