European Tour with Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic

Joyce joins forces with the New York Philharmonic and Music Director Alan Gilbert for a whirlwind European tour, beginning with a performance at the National Concert Hall in Dublin on April 16, followed by a concert at The Barbican in London on April 17. The program includes Ravel’s Shéhérazade and the UK premiere of Salonen’s Nyx, and is a highlight of Joyce’s Artist Spotlight series at the venue, which also included a wildly successful performance of selections from her album Stella di Napoli in September and a spectacular concert setting of Handel’s Alcina in October. The tour continues with concerts at the famed Concertgebow in Amsterdam on April 21, the Philharmonie Luxembourg on April 23, and the Philharmonie de Paris on April 25.

While in London, she will also reunite with the Brentano String Quartet on April 14 at The Barbican, to reprise the stunning program from their Carnegie Hall performance earlier this season, which will include the European premiere of Jake Heggie’s Camille Claudel: Into the Fire. Ticket availability is extremely limited for this special event, which also includes a post-show Q&A session with Ms. DiDonato and Mr. Heggie.

La Damnation de Faust with the Berlin Philharmonic

This spring, Joyce DiDonato sings the role of Marguerite in a series of concert performances of Berlioz’s La Damnation de Faust with the acclaimed Berlin Philharmonic, led by Sir Simon Rattle. Performances take place March 29 and April 5 at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, and April 10 & 11 at the Philharmonie in Berlin. Ms. DiDonato is joined by a phenomenal cast for these concerts, including Charles Castronovo in the title role and Ludovic Tézier as Méphistophélès.

The April 11 performance will be streamed live online via the Philharmonic’s Digital Concert Hall, and Joyce can also be heard singing the aria “D’amour l’ardente flame” from the opera on her album ReJOYCE!

Carnegie Hall concert audio now available online

Joyce DiDonato presented the final concert of her Perspectives series at Carnegie Hall on March 18, in a sparkling performance that included tenor Lawrence Brownlee, soprano Laura Claycomb, and the Philadelphia Orchestra, led by Maurizio Benini. The program included highlights from Ms. DiDonato’s album Stella di Napoli and other favorites from the Bel Canto era. The WQXR archived broadcast of the event, which combined “explosive vocal fireworks, soaring melodies and sprightly orchestral textures,” (WQXR) is now available online.

“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.”

Free Form “Wisdom”

During the flurry of my insanely bizarre and wonderful fall schedule, I received a request from the Mu Phi Chapter at Radford University in Virginia, asking for some words of encouragement. As a proud Mu Phi Alum, it took me a few weeks to respond, but I managed to get a few thoughts down onto “paper” while speeding across Europe on a high speed train. It’s not my most eloquent writing, but it captured that particular moment in time where my brain was buzzing with the desire to impart some, eh hem, wisdom, words of encouragement, and perhaps even so much as empowering them to get fierce about their paths!

As an artist, you will never arrive at a fixed destination. THIS is the glory and the reward of striving to master your craft and embarking on the path of curiosity and imagination, while being tireless in your pursuit of something greater than yourself.
