REVIEWS

Symphony No. 2 by L. Farrenc at La Maestra Competition – Mar. 2022

“Zoe Zeniodi, our great favourite!
During La Maestra, Zoe Zeniodi won us over by conducting Louise Farrenc’s Symphony with great panache, determination and sensitivity. She is a conductor with a great sense of articulation and is very structured. She is very charismatic and knows how to communicate effectively with the orchestra and the soloists.”

The Human Voice (by Poulenc) and The Call (D’Netto) at Opera Queensland, Brisbane Festival – Sept. 2022

“Conductor Zoe Zeniodi and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra prepared both operas to a standard that suited the genres with complete stylistic perfection, which is of course merit to Zeniodi’s leadership and knowledge.”

– Nikhil Deo, Limelight

 Le nozze di Figaro at New Zealand Opera – Jun. 2021

“The musical highlights were the long finales of the second and fourth acts; Zeniodi tied together all of the musical threads easily, highlighting key individual vocal and instrumental details and bringing each of these to an exciting conclusion.”
