"Lozano took on the poetry of his texts (all of them in his native Spanish) with gusto and added compelling drama to everything he sang."
Joan Reinthaler, Washington Post
Washington Post, August 30th 2005
"...The finest and most finished work came from...McCall and Lozano (her beel-like clarity and fine
control and his juicy, italianate ring at their most exciting in the Love-duet from "Lucia di Lammermoor).
Operaonline Review of Luisa Fernanda
Spanish tenor (yes he had the tenor lead instead of Placido) Israel Lozano, as Javier, was also vocally
sound. Though slightly stiff on stage, his character had some of the most beautiful melodies of the
evening and he delivered them wonderfully.
New York Times review of Luisa Fernanda
One couldn't help rooting for the tenor voice of Israel Lozano (Javier) as it faced every high note and
pressure point with grit, determination and general success.
Washington Times Review of Luisa Fernanda
As the cad Javier, Israel Lozano got impressive mileage from his compact yet gallant tenor instrument...
Metro Weekly Review of Luisa Fernanda
... he [Lozano] is an accomplished tenor, with good range and he brings some real power at times.
Ludwigsburger Kreszeitung, 21 September 2004
The Spaniard Israel Lozano as Alfredo, with a lyric, moving tenor even in the high range, became freer and freer.
Der Neue Merker, 10/04
" The sympathies went singularly on [account] of her [Violetta’s] partner tenor Israel Lozano, a young Spanish tenor with a winning stage presence, who at the moment is working from virtuoso belcanto into Verdi fach. With a melting, emotionally nuanced, grabbing tenor, whose natural sound sometimes recalls Giacomo Aragall’s in its beauty, he is on the path to becoming an Alfredo presence..."
Vaihinger Kreiszeitung, 21 September 2004
"He who hears tenor Israel Lozano, who sang the role of Alfredo Germont, stays deeply immersed in his beautiful singing..."
Südwest Presse, 21 September 2004
" Israel Lozano as Alfredo sang with a tight-packaged Italian tenor voice for connoisseurs."
Sttutgarter Nachrichten, 21 September 2004
"The Spaniard Israel Lozano was convincing as Alfredo with his razor-sharp perfectly in tune tenor."
Bietigheimer Zeitung, 21 September 2004
"The Spaniard Israel Lozano as her lover, Alfredo, developed his sympathetic character through his glorious singing."
Esslinger Zeitung, 21 September 2004
"The 2nd discovery of the evening was the Spanish Israel Lozano, with his razor-sharp, exactly in tune, in high and low range, tenor."
