Tryllefløjten – Operaen – Det Kongelige Teater – 2017
Opera log - Mogens H. Andersson - Nice to relive the tenor Jan Lund in the role of Monostatos. Vocally very outstanding, and here we experience a singer with great stage ability!
Martin Bror Hoffmann – What a voice! when you started "Comfort ye" it didn't take more than 8 seconds before I thought - he has to sing to me every day. It is rare that mimicry, voice, tonality and totality coincide so beautifully. Together with the soprano Mette-Maria Øyen, you performed this beautiful performance of Messiah.
Sange i Nyt Lys – CD med Carl Nielsen Trio – 2016
Torben Enghoff – Author of e.g. the book: "Carl Nielsen - An overview": Many thanks for the CD "Songs in New Light". Heard a bit of it at one of the Carl Nielsen Society's meetings and immediately thought I had to have it. It's a great selection of songs. I have always been enthusiastic about your song and have used your recording of "Havet omring Danmark" (with the Aalborg Symphony Orchestra) at my lectures on Carl Nielsen. You can simply hear that you really like the music!

After beautiful notes in religious silence, the singer brought us to an explosive finale, which triggered a raucous applause demanding several encores.
Die tote Stadt – The Dallas Opera – 2014
North Texas Performing Arts Review: Marietta´s madcap group of revelers always brings some relief to the overall gloom of the opera. In this production they are a standout. They enter from the back of the house, as though they come from some other world than what is on stage, and slowly make their way into the action. Their antics are grotesquely exaggerated, as they should be in a dream, and all of the voices are strong, as that of Jan Lund singing Victorin.
The Column, Dallas: The rest of the cast create very believable characters from their roles, and each has a unique and distinct voice, as that of Jan Lund singing Victorin, helping to make the production vocally flawless.

Sange i Nyt Lys – CD med Carl Nielsen Trio, DanaCord 2012
MusicWeb International: Jan Lund is a well-known Quantity from other recordings (…) He sings here with just the right degree of artless simplicity, not trying to make too music of these basically straightforward songs (…) The slow “Shall flowers all then wither?” is heavenly in this treatment with the flute floating above the vocal line (…) This is a charming, very well contrasted and altogether unexpected collection – a shame it couldn´t have been longer.
John Christiansen: Jan Lund sings the 19 songs expressively, so the variation in Nielsen's music comes through nicely. It has become both exciting and nuanced.
Fono Forum (German): Between Mehler and Chanson; (...) The texts tell small stories, biblical and verse, and Jan Lund bears his big part in this. With controlled vibrato and without pathos, he sings the songs. He lets himself be carried and led by the melodies, only adds necessary accents and no more. Beyond that, he varies the expression with the voice. The mood on the CD varies between lighter sadness and a lighter feeling of happiness (...) The Carl Nielsen Trio really lets Nielsen's songs shine in a new light.
Orpheus´68 – Holstebro Musikteater, 2012
John Christiansen: The Danish team of singers does it absolutely superbly. (...) As Orpheus in the piece, Jan Lund had lovely baroque tenor singing to offer (...) It is actually rare that you get such a good group of singers in the same opera.
Fyens Stiftstidende: The role that can be sung by Jan Lund, who with his extensive stage experience and lyrical tenor fills his role beautifully.
Gregers Dirckinck-Holmfeld: The participating singer staff speaks with conviction about the breadth and quality among Danish opera singers (...) Orpheus is certainly sung by Jan Lund.
Wilde´s World – CD m. Faye Ellen Silverman verker, indspillet 2011
IAWM Journal: Wilde’s World; for tenor, viola, and guitar, commemorates the 100th anniversary of Oscar Wilde’s death, and is a setting of Wilde’s poem “Roses and Rue”. Silverman uses melismas and ornaments to depict the cultural ambience of late nineteenth-century art and music. The frequent use of melismas in the tenor part remind one of Britten’s operatic arias. The work is beautifully performed by Jan Lund, violist Ninnie Isaksson, and guitarist Kristian Gantriis. The trio features three very distinct and independent but supportive lines, yet with tone and color they appear to perform as one entity. The piece is generally through-composed with musical repetition mirroring Wilde’s word repetition. Both the text and music touchingly depict a failed relationship and its accompanying sadness.
Angelo – Pakhus 11, København, 2012
Jyllands Posten: The nine singers on stage create flow in the cheerful scenes at the bar, at the wedding and in Lucia's bedroom (...) and Jan Lund convinces as the groom Domenico del Monte.

Koncert m. CarlsVognen – Utzon Center Aalborg, 2011
Nordjyske Stiftstidende: Jan Lund's tenor has gained more fullness and breadth in recent years, without, however, going beyond his fine sense of textual and lyrical expression. Karen Skriver's flute also filled the stage, both in the textual interaction with Jan Lund and in the characterization of the individual songs. Michael Norman provided a discreet and safe accompaniment for singer and flute all the way.
Sigurd Dragedræber – Den Fynske Opera, 2011
Fyns Stiftstidende: All four are vocally excellent in each of their roles. It is sung powerfully, but with a text pronunciation that nicely matches Nørgaard's tongue-in-cheek libretto, but also beautifully lyrical in the melodious duets between Odin's graceful raven and Sigurd (Jan Lund).

La Fanciulla del West – Den Jyske Opera, 2009
Weekendavisen: A very special performance is the tenor Jan Lund as Minnie's disc jumper Nick, nimbly limping and with a world-class moustache, a polished echo of Scarpia's affable henchman Spoletta from Tosca. Over the course of the three acts, we get to experience Nick ranging from loving himself to sadistic joy and back again.
Jyllands Posten: It is unfair to name a few of so many good singers, so it must be a list that starts with Jan Lund's exciting bartender Nick.

Jyllands-Posten 24-01-2007 about DogmeOpera's performance in Turbinehallen, Århus: DogmeOpera brings seriousness and fun together, the cheerful antics and the serious balanced in good balance.
