…smooth from top to bottom…
“Lyric baritone Gabriel Preisser has a pleasant voice, smooth from top to bottom, and he showed a wide range of expression, from the sly humor of Beethoven’s “Der Kuss” to Strauss’s rapid, intense “Heimliche Aufforderung” and the languid phrases and impassioned moments of Schubert’s famous “Ständchen.”” -Broad Street Review 
…brought smiles to the faces of his audience…
“Baritone Preisser demonstrated the requisites of an accomplished concert singer. His voice is excellent, and pliable enough to deliver everything his very musical mind imagines… Mr. Preisser included five opera arias from his energetic opening, Rossini’s “Largo al Factotum, ” to his encore, Germont’s aria “Di Provenza” from “Traviata.” Along the way Mr. Preisser tossed in a tasteful rendition of Menotti’s “When the Air Sings of Summer” from “The Old Man and the Thief.”  Familiar songs by Johannes Brahms and F. Paolo Tosti were welcome hearing and emphasized good diction, and pleasing legato line. I personally enjoyed Preisser’s touching rendition of Tosti’s “Ideale.”  Preisser’s range from top to bottom is easy and cut from one cloth.  A special treat was three French cabaret songs by Francis Poulenc. Here Preisser’s panache and humorous interpretation brought smiles to the faces of his audience” -Winter Park/Maitland Observer 
…compelling sound and agile coloratura…
“Preisser glows in triumph…. He has an excellent baritone voice that he uses with skillful excellence… (His) Purcell songs immediately demonstrated Preisser’s compelling sound and agile coloratura…  Four Richard Strauss songs were pleasing events whose vocal passion was reflected not only in the singer, but in the remarkable piano accompaniments of Edward Rothmel… The French language received melodious attention in Maurice Ravel’s “Don Quichotte à Dulcinée,” which gave the singer opportunity to expand his acting talents.  After intermission came three Paolo Tosti songs. The singer’s even production and flowing breath enhanced his impressive vocal artistry. I especially relished “L’alba Separa Dalla Luce L’ombra. ” Three Samuel Barber songs and three Broadway songs brought the program to a close with the audience on its feet giving the artists a well-deserved standing ovation…” -Louis Roney (retired Met Opera Tenor) Winter Park/Maitland Observer
