“Logan Lopez Gonzalez communicated every atom of the soft simplicity of the vocal line. His individualised timbre and the egg-shell care that he applied to the vocal lines of the songs reaped huge emotional and dramatic rewards.”Opera Today
“Logan Lopez Gonzalez gave such a moving and haunting account of the Refugee’s aria from Jonathan Dove’s Flight that the trappings of Cadogan Hall faded from view as he sang. An hour later, his lyrical performance as Medoro in Handel’s Orlando was in such contrast that only his physiognomy gave him away. The silken, beauty of his voice beguiled the ear in both excerpts.”Opera Magazine
“Young Logan Lopez Gonzalez illuminates the shepherd’s song at the beginning of the third act with his androgynous timbre.”Forumopera
“Amore is entrusted to the young countertenor Logan Lopez Gonzalez whose singularity of timbre underlines the divine character. Very credible on stage, he proves to be a good technician and a fine musician.”Resmusica
