«"Jeffrey hartman as canio stood out, an angry bull to the red rag of nedda's adultery with Silvio, he could hardly contain his violent hurt... his full bodied and expansive voice was expressive and flexible, exposing wild pangs of jealousy."»

«Calaf: "Jeffrey hartman, a very mature 'youth', beautiful tenor, present at all times, beautiful heights, fullness more then the Tatar prince of 2001 that we remember..."»
The chemnitzer (2017)
«Pinkerton: "Jeffrey hartman was suitably oleaginous at the outset, and effectively creepy in the scene leading to the consummation of the marriage. His strong, dramatic voice held up well, and managed to evoke at least a little sympathy in his remorse when he discovers butterfly's lifeless body."»
