Berlioz with Sir Antonio Pappano & the National Youth Orchestra of the USA

This month, Joyce DiDonato joins the National Youth Orchestra of the USA on tour with Sir Antonio Pappano, for four performances of Berlioz’s six ravishing love songs: Les nuits d’été. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the death of Hector Berlioz. Although not known primarily as a composer of song, he wrote more than fifty, many of them prime examples of his gift for melody.

The concert appearances will include August 9 at Usher Hall, part of the Edinburgh International Festival; August 11 at Royal Albert Hall, part of BBC Proms (broadcast available via BBC Four on Friday, August 16); August 13 at Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw; and conclude on August 14 at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg (live stream available on August 14 via the Elbphilharmonie).

Recital with David Zobel at Festival d’Auvers-sur-Oise

On June 20, Joyce DiDonato performs in recital with her longtime collaborator, pianist David Zobel, at the Festival d’Auvers-sur-Oise. Together they present a program featuring arias by Mozart, Handel, Rossini, and American songs. Marking the 39th edition, learn more about the Festival d’Auvers-sur-Oise here.

Previous acclaim of Ms. DiDonato and David Zobel in recital:

“Accompanied by the pianist David Zobel, Ms. DiDonato opened with three arias from operas by Vivaldi. The qualities that have made her a hot commodity in Handel were on full display: powerful low notes, penetrating highs and utter security in between, as well as dazzling technical command, stylish ornamentation and an eloquent grasp of character.” (New York Times) More
