Johan Hartman, an operatic bass-baritone and composer, is a recent graduate from the master’s program at CCM. He has performed such roles as Leporello in Don Giovanni, Seneca in Monteverdi's L’incoronazione di Poppea, Sarastro in The Magic Flute, Pistola in Verdi’s Falstaff, and Truffaldin in Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos, among others.
As a boy soprano he performed the role of Amahl from Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors at the Bushnell Center of Performing Arts, the role of Sem in Britten’s Noye’s Fludde, and he performed Bach’s Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen in Glastonbury, England.
He has also appeared in a number of concerts and recitals across the east coast, including as a soloist in the New England Conservatory's production of Handel's Messiah in Boston, a soloist in The Mostly Baroque Players’ Classical Masterworks concert in Hartford, as well as being a soloist in a concert given in 2018 by Constitution Records at the Frost School of Music in Miami.
As a composer he has written several song-cycles, including one on the Robert Browning poem “Soliloquy of the Spanish Cloister” , and one on the W.B. Yeats poem “Blood and the Moon”, which he premiered on his master’s recital for CCM.
Another one of his passions is premiering new music, and he's had the opportunity to premiere music by three different Boston based composers; Yeeray Low, Ian Weiss, and Timothy Ayers-Kerr in which he played a principal role in his opera Game of Werewolf. He also premiered a Chamber Opera during his time at CCM entitled With Her Eyes, which was composed by Ye Zhao.
