"Soloists Jeanne Ommerle, Jane West, Todd Teske and James Maddalena as well as the Washington Bach Consort deserve much credit for sailing over the musical challenges."

"Even finer was the Evangelist of tenor Todd Teskejust back from Germany where he performed Bach with noted conductor Helmuth Rilling.
Singing in excellent German and taking high notes with ease, he brought a lieder singers sensitivity to the narrators role. Especially beautiful was the phrase Da verliessen ihn alle Junger und flohenand the poignancy with which he described Peter weeping bitterly after thrice denying Christ."

"(Todd Teske) has a lovely tenor sound, always on pitch and in sync with the conductor better than anyone in either casts."
"That is a beautiful tenor voice."
Le Diable Boiteux (Milhoud), Giessen Stadttheater-Germany
"Soloistically, the role in the best hands was that of the devil in priests clothing, portrayed with physical agility and near counter tenor range by Todd Teske the character element of the role was wonderfully brought out (and)radiated a powerful presence."

"(The witch)was performed by a young lyric tenor, Todd Teske, who is starting to develop a national reputationwas jet propelled and the audience howled in appreciation. The fidget rate dropped to zero and was replaced by the well-known trampoline rate of 10 out of 10. His performance was a wonderful amalgam of Robin Williams at his most manic best coupled with some Monty Python silly walksHe did more acting with his fingers than the rest of the cast did with their whole bodies. He did this while doing justice to Humperdincks music and hitting those high Bs. seeing his fingers alone gives you your moneys worth."
