Critical Acclaim

  • "...Mrs. Dynamite. Her Schumann’s 4th with the splendid Bogota Philharmonic was more than praiseworthy; the contrast between the thickness of the third movement and the vigor of the finale were a testament to the symphonic mind of this artist whose present is brilliant and whose future appears to be more than promising."
    Scherzo.es
  • "The audience of more than 1,000 people immediately connected with the intensity of the French pianist Lise de la Salle and Zeniodi who moved everyone to tears. . . The performance ended with a solid version of Schumann’s Symphony no. 1"
    Las 2 Orillas
  • "Discovering this young and temperamental Greek conductor, Zoe Zeniodi, was a revelation that I won’t soon forget."
    Reforma.com
  • "Conductor Zoe Zeniodi and 21st Ensemble, the work’s other dedicatees, provide shimmering accompaniment."
    Opera News, Joshua Rosenblum
  • "The night culminated in an unexpectedly thrilling performance of Tchaikovsky's 5th free from any sense of routine. The ingenious Greek maestro dealt with this fully developed, romantic symphonic work by making the utmost of her musicians' youthful alacrity and focused presence."
    Kathimerini,
  • "Zoe Zeniodi conducts a fleet, dramatically intense performance."
    South Florida Classical Review,
