Bettina Schröm: There is indestructible Branislav Jatic with his full bass, as very cold-blooded and reliable Ferrando.
REMS-ZEITUNG, July 7th 2003.
Peter Skobowsky: We remember the bass of Branislav Jatic (Ferrando), who left the best impression the year before (Monterone); this artist is dramatically brilliant in solo parts of the role, as well as in ensembles.
HEIDENHEIMER ZEITUNG, July 7th 2003.
F. Kubiak: Branislav
Jatic (Ferrando) opened the night as powerful basso profondo and during
the show stayed shoulder to shoulder with four other protagonists.
Bersa: The Flame (Der EISENHAMMER), HNK
Zagreb, opening night: May 24th 2003.
FROM GERMAN NEWSPAPERS, July 2002.
Branislav Jatic as Monterone with fatal hurl leaves a powerful impression and gives the seal to the entire show.
The moving force of this drama is Monterones curse: behind the curtain, as a giant shadow, his threatening bass curses the Duke and the Fool for abducting his daughter
Besides other protagonists we wish to point out Branislav Jatic as the dark Monterone.
Jatic as Monterone brings a sovereign character with all needed authority.
At the end of the story his curse becomes true.
Adamov: "This year's NOMUS has been
enriched by three evenings of chamber music and their interesting instrumental
combinations, as well as by evening that presented the most notable of
all instruments, human voice. This voice, deepest and powerfull one, of
beautiful colour and great volume, attracted the admirers
of well-known bass from Novi Sad Branislav Jatic (from this season Master
of Belgrade Opera). His performance in City Hall, in combination with
some solo turns of "TAJJ" fiddling quartet that presented itself
as a successful back up as well as an integral part of vocal interpretations,
once again showed an interpretative force that can be counted on.
From the rewiev by A. Zurin, "TRUD" December 12, 1998: "Nobody has ever been able to reproduce the style of Chaliapin. The exceptional four bass singers (L. Boldin, N. Giuselev, B. Jatic and V. Pivovarov) have even not tried to do that. Each of them has sounded in his own specific manner. There is a deep symbolism in the fact that none of them has betrayed the Chaliapin's principle of the artistic truth: we have been presented a series of lived-through and deeply inspired interpretations, each of them individually coloured and marked with unique vocal and psychological qualities of each of the singers."
A. Dvorak: MUSICAL CHRONICLE "REQUIEM" - POLITIKA April 3, 1996
Ana Kotevska: "The most successful parts of the "REQUIEM", such as the effective Dies irae and the meditative quartet of the soloists "Recordare", are completely in accordance with the culmination of the performance. The Quartet consisting of unequalized soloists, where the female side is overpowered by right side of male voices, has in our circumstances, performed an act of the heroic quality. It has achieved harmony with the laws of concert singing and strengthened itself through dialogues with the soloists of the orchestra, included in the score. In addition to Ms. D. Simic, who has showed intonational competence, but whose vocal expression is insufficient, and a very convincing Mr. Branislav Jatic, who, in some parts, has performed an independent bass sololoquy, Ms. Milena Kitic has also shone. A young tenor with a very good voice, has come as a surprise, from the class of Ms. Biserka Cvejic. The conductor, Mr. Tabakov, has held, without the score, the attention of 350 performers."
CH. Gounod: "FAUST" - DNEVNIK April 29 - 30 and May 1 - 2, 1995
Marija Adamov: An Opera Premiere - ROMANTIC LYRICISM "...The main dramatic role, preffered by all international bass singers, has been performed very convincingly by Mr. Branislav Jatic. He has dominated the stage and held the attention of the audience with his strong, nice and rich voice..."
"FAUST" - RADIO NOVI SAD April 21, 1995 - April 24, 1995
Jozef Hadik: IN NOVI SAD, THE OPERA COULD BE CALLED MEPHISTOPHELES "The author named his opera "Faust", although he took only a part from Goethe's "FAUST", the part in which Margarete represents the central character. In order to make difference between the opera and and the work of the famous writer, the Germans named it MARGARETE. However, in Novi Sad, the opera could be performed under the title MEPHISTOPHELES, because Mr. Branislav Jatic, acting his character, governs the stage throughout the performance with his fascinating voice and acting. His interpretation conquers with the strength of an avalanche."
HUDOBNY ZIVOT No.1/94 January 19, 1994
Pavel Unger: "Branislav Jatic (Dulcamara), a new soloist of the ensemble (of the State Opera Banjska Bistrica), a bass singer from Serbia, is an experienced stage artist who self-confidently governs the stage and controls situation. His voice is resonant, pithy and stable, and as such, with its rich volume, predestinated for large spaces."
G. Donizetti: "VIVA LA MAMMA" - DNEVNIK January 7, 1992
THE EXPRESSED TALENT "The performer of the main role, the bass, Branislav Jatic, who is able not only to visualize the action, but also, by means of his narrative performance, to make it closer to the reality, represents a genuine pearl and the very soul of the performance. Having performed the role of mamma Agata, he has added another big achievement to his rich repertoire. He has proved his brilliant talent for the comic in performing a lady, gracefully and easily, in spite of his large stature. He has, in a charming way, acquired the manners of a lady who is ready to do anything for the success of her daughter who is performing for the fist time at an opera house. Mr. Jatic has skillfully added to his buffo role vocal components of the high bass register. It has seemed throughout the performance that the role of "mamma Agata" is as if tailored for him."
M. Adamov: "Mr. Branislav Jatic performed the role of the Spanish king Philip II, employing his vocal and acting capabilities in a stirring manner. In expressing the whole tragedy, anger, grief, helplessness, sorrow, passion and resignation of an unloved king, husband and father, he conquered with his strength, warmth and a specific sonorous quality of his exceptional bass voice. His extraordinary interpretation will be remembered, and especially his great soliloquy from Act III, which, by its emotional warmth and richness, is considered to be one of the most powerfull pages of operatic literature."
E. Gvozdenovic: "GUARDIAN", performed by Mr. Branislav Jatic - rich in voice, gentle in expression.
