Aria Paulus Mendelssohn
Heure Espagnole Excerpt
"impressive, wonderfully balanced, even when going to the borders of crazyness..." "Havranová transportiert alle diese turbulenten Seelenzustände unglaublich expressiv, ganz explizit auch in ihrem Gebet an die Jungfrau Maria. Ebenso eindrucksvoll Ewandro Stenzowski als wunderbar ausgeglichener, gleichwohl bis zur Raserei sich aufschwingender Stewa.". (2014)
"powerfull tenor (...) impressed with the easiness of his high C`s". (2014)
"There is the shy, but determined about his love, Nemorino. Ewandro Stenzowski brings all the lovely clumsyness and immediately conquers the hearts of the audience. He also has a voice that offers everything till the Belcanto sounds and gestus from Una furtiva, the secret tear". "Da ist der schüchterne, aber zielstrebig liebende Nemorino, dem Ewandro Stenzowski jene liebenswerte Tapsigkeit verleiht, die sofort die Herzen der Zuschauer erobert. Zudem verfügt er über eine Tenorstimme, die bis zum klanggestättigten Belcanto der “furtiva lagrima”, der heimlichen Träne, alle Register bietet". (2014)
"With Ewandro Stenzowski we have a tenor that perfectly embodies the naivety and voluptuousness of the lover Nemorino. Exactly like his mimics and body language, his voice shows him as an emotional person". (2014)
" and then, there is Ewandro Stenzowski`s french singing. A bit Don Josè, but also still with mozartian qualities and a lot of italianità. For the central narratives in Holst`s opera he used a superb mix of Lied mystery and parody". (2013)
" the brazilian Ewandro Stenzowski (Gonzalve/Pierre) - with a kind of strong, Heroic voice -..." (2013)
"beautiful - and above all, a technically well-developed voice has Ewandro Stenzowski as a well-timbred Don Ottavio ". (2012)
"secure in the high tessitura". "er sang mit kernigem, höhensicherem Tenor". (2012)
