Reviews

  • The London Handel Festival 2017

    The evening’s star performance came from the Swedish mezzo Ida Ränzlöv as Faramondo, her magnetic stage presence and consistently accomplished vocalism making her completely convincing.

    In the title role, however, mezzo soprano Ida Ränzlöv was in a class of her own from the start. There is a real richness to Ränzlöv’s sound and a vividness of tone; she demonstrated a natural feeling for the Handelian phrase, delivering the coloratura with effortless seamlessness and crafting a fine cantabile. Ränzlöv also demonstrated dramatic range and – in this opera, no mean feat – credibility, conveying both Faramondo’s vicious streak and an underlying tenderness.

    She is the Swedish mezzo Ida Ränzlöv in the title role — tall, powerful, rich-toned, a star in the making.
