Joyce DiDonato mezzo-soprano
Il Pomo d’Oro
Maxim Emelyanychev conductor
Les Grandes Voix
Always eagerly awaited by her many admirers, this latest recital by the American mezzo-soprano is devoted to the Baroque repertoire
The Kansas-born American diva Joyce DiDonato has long been a triumph in the bel canto repertoire. Her full, fruity voice, flexible, warm high notes and vibrant trills are conquering audiences everywhere. Today she is making a foray into ancient music with a programme that is a shrewd blend of famous and little-known arias. Technically, she is just as masterful in this repertoire, with an assured emission and fine natural projection. For each role, she is completely in character, taking on its vocal and psychological variations (rage, insanity, pain, etc.). Joyce DiDonato reigns supreme!
