“Joyce DiDonato, Queen of the Night in Geneva!” (Bachtrack)

“Champagne and yes more champagne were needed to mark the 30th anniversary of the Circle of the Grand Theater of Geneva! Indeed, the performance of the American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato would be breathtaking: sumptuousness of the timbre, sublime phrasing, vocally superlative and nevertheless without surprise, not preventing in any way a salutary relaxation, a simple and direct relation with the public, a generosity even in how to speak to us about the troubled times we are going through and the mistakes of humanity … a Diva yes, but committed.”

“As expected, DiDonato has virtuosity to spare, but what makes this disc special is the shimmering radiance of emotion she brings to operas such as Bellini’s Adelson e Salvini and Pacini’s Saffo. In Mary Stuart’s radiantly sung solo before her execution DiDonato leaves no doubt that her own star is at its height.”

My New Year’s Resolute Suggestions for Singers, et al …

So, that was 2016 … !  I’ve always loved looking back at a recently closed chapter in my life, analyzing it to learn what worked well (and what didn’t), appreciating it for what it was, and setting up my game plan for the next adventure.  While this past year has been an astonishing one for me in many ways, I have to ask: is anyone else out there happy to usher this particular 365-day cycle out the door?  I thought so.  So, that means THIS is the moment for us to decide HOW we want to open the door to the next cycle.
