Classic FM’s 20 best classical albums of the year – “In War & Peace”

ClassicFM

Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato was inspired by the 2015 Paris attacks to record this album of Baroque opera arias on the subject of war and peace. DiDonato told us she wanted to “bring an album into the world that reminds us of the best of humanity. Nobody represents this better in music better than Purcell and Handel… From the internal chaos of Agrippina to the deep sense of loss of Dido”.
