ClassicFM

The shortlist for the 40th Gramophone Awards includes mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, pianists Murray Perahia and Daniil Trifonov, Masaaki Suzuki and his Bach Collegium and Glyndebourne Opera. This year the Gramophone Awards is marking its 40th anniversary, and today the shortlist for the 2017 awards has been unveiled.

The nominees include mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato for her album In War and Peace, pianist Murray Perahia for his recording of J.S. Bach’s French Suites and the LSO – Classic FM’s Orchestra in the City of London – for a recording of works by Thomas Adès, conducted by the composer himself.

Les Troyens / Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg

“Joyce DiDonato arrived as Didon in Act III looking every inch the queen of Carthage, acknowledging her people with straight backed authority without losing a delicate feminine sadness over her solitude. Her blossoming relationship with the Énée of tenor Michael Spyres brought a duet of overwhelming sensuality … Just when “reserved” and “elegant” seemed apt words to describe DiDonato, the mezzo seized on the drama of the final act to unfurl a torrent of lustrous tone and unbridled commitment to set her performance of the Carthaginian queen beside the great interpreters of the role.”

“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.
