Swedish Press, Skånska Dagbladet

Wagner & Verdi Gala Concert, Freiburg Concert Hall:
”And when Wagner sink to the ground in the Piazza San Marco comes Isolde’s Liebestod (Excellent dramatic and with a mighty big and strong soprano voice: Eva Rydén) into the stage.”

Badische Zeitung, Germany

Tosca in Sweden Tour:
”The evening’s greatest benefit was the Eva Rydén magnificent effort as Tosca… I felt like Eva Rydén gave the concept of dramatic soprano a completely new face… it was a pleasure to listen to Eva’s version of Tosca, not least the scenic expression, which was incredible nuanced and a totally awesome experience.”

Swedish Culture Magazine

Opening Concert of the Piteå Festival,Sweden:
”The Festival’s opening concert ends with ”Dich teure Halle” from Wagner’s ”Tannhäuser”. Eva Rydén has sung Wagner sooner and in larger context than this, which is noticeable, she knows her Wagner, and there is a strong finish to the evening.”

Swedish Press, Piteå Tidningen

Orchestral Concerts in Umeå Concert Hall, Sweden:
”Eva Rydén sang Leonora’s ”Pace, pace mio Dio” with a steadfast technique… Isolde’s Liebestod… a true interpretation with a large presence, warmth and intensity…”

Swedish Press, Västerbotten Kuriren

Opera – Musical Theatre Concert:
”Eva Rydén has a well-trained voice with an extensive range, heavenly height, beautiful tone, and a big volume. Her voice often resembles another, world-famous, opera singer’s voice from Southern Sweden. Surprisingly enough, in the second part of the concert, she could bring forward a Musical-Theatre voice, with volume and timbre sounding totally different in order to match that type of music. An impressive style change!”

Swedish Press, Skånska Dagbladet

Concert with Nordic Songs at Piteå Festival, Sweden:
”How often do you get in such an intimate setting to listen to a live sounding board, which can adapt in all directions in tinting strength, tone, phrasing and emotional expression? Eva Rydén sings thereto with a warmth that sent cold knots along the body.”

Swedish Press, Piteå Tidningen

Concert:
”Tasteful vocal art… rather than striving for showy grandeur and spectacular high notes, Eva Rydén sought the ideal within pure and unaffected shapes, in which the words and musical expression is layered as equal in importance.”

Swedish Press, Hallandsposten

Wagner Concert:
”The soprano Eva Rydén has a voluminous voice which she uses with confident distinction. The tone is warm and the height steel-secure when needed.”

Swedish Press, Skånska Dagbladet

Concert with A Sea Symphony in Freiburg Concert Hall:
”Soprano Eva Rydén intone wonderfully transparent, gives a majestic sound wall. An impressive and exciting concert that had the standing ovation deserved.”

Badische Zeitung, Germany

John Rutter – Requiem:
”Even though a dramatic opera soprano with extensive volume resources, Eva Rydén showed that even big voices can have a soft pianissimo in their range. The expressive interpretation of the words gave a nice relief in contrast to the compact sound of the choir.”

Swedish Press, Skånska Dagbladet

Marcellina in Figaro:
”The dramatic soprano Eva Rydén – in the evenings multi colored dress – vocally luxuriously casted in Marcellina’s small mezzopart.”

Swedish Press, Hallandsposten

Nominate for Music Award Prize:

”Eva Rydén has an opera voice that ”the world has been waiting for” ever since Birgit Nilsson ended her world-career as an opera singer. Her voice has a beautiful lyrical tone, extreme expansion and secure height, together with dramatic expression that can transform into sensible intimacy and sensitive devotion.”

Wagner Concert:
”At the end of the concert Eva Rydén sang Isolde’s Liebestod, Mild und Leise… from the opera Tristan and Isolde. With a splendid low yet steel-secure beginning, her interpretation of the part through its still and gradual fading insight, leading to the death Isolde is voluntarily approaching in the name of love. An obviously sensitive ending to an increadible experience.”

Swedish Press, Skånska Dagbladet

Nominate text on Music Award Price Diploma:
”Eva Rydén – for a voice with beautiful tone in height as well as in volume, for wonderful acting capabilities and perfect diction.”

Concert:
”Eva Rydéns qualities – beside the purely vocal ones and the obvious ones such as solid intonation, effortless high pitch, wide timbre range and natural phrasing – is first and foremost her ability to adjust her voluminous soprano voice to the individual demands and feelings conveyed in each work. The expression is pure and natural, the diction clear and the richness in nuance outstanding.”

Swedish Press, Hallandsposten

Operetta Concert:
”A dramatic opera voice that switches completely over to a musical-theatre voice, Eva Rydén demonstrated this in ”I could have danced all night” from Loewe’s My Fair Lady. Her sensitivity to nuance and musical expression presented a fine balance. She showed that her voice possesses volume and richness in expansion in the wiener lied ”Wien, Wien nur Du allein” by Rudolf Sieszynski.”

Swedish Press, Skånska Dagbladet

Pergolesi Stabat Mater (Alto):
”The one that was most successful in communicating the meaning of the words through her voice was the alto soloist Eva Rydén, with her rich as well as clear tone. When she sings about carrying Christ’s suffering and feeling his wounds, I really believed her.”

Swedish Press, Hallandsposten

Concert in Probaltica Festival, Poland:
”Eva Rydén, a strong but also beautiful and warm Swedish soprano voice through the entire registry and with a very clear diction.”

Polish Press, Poland
