"Herrmann was a noted heldenbariton with a big, bright, and somewhat metallic voice that was powerful up to high A, and a dramatic temperament that made for intense, committed characterizations."
- Kurt Moses, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, March/April., 2006
“Bass-baritone Josef Herrmann's performance of Wotan's Farewell is vocally and histrionically commanding—there is no Wotan today who can match his performance.”
