Described by Opera World as “a journey with mythological heroines, baroque truth and reality,” Joyce DiDonato and Il Pomo d’Oro under the direction of Maxim Yemelyanychev bring their acclaimed project of “In War & Peace: Harmony Through Music” to Russia.
On November 29 and December 1 at the Zaryadye Concert Hall in Moscow, Ms. DiDonato and the ensemble perform works by Handel, Leo, de Cavalieri, Purcell, and Gesualdo. Additional information and links to purchase the album are available via Joyce’s Recordings. The project has already won public recognition since its release in 2016:
“If there is anybody to sing the baroque repertoire and to catch the inner, deeper sense of that music- the sense of inner conflict between war and peace- this Is Joyce DiDonato. And what is more- she allows anyone in the audience to feel the music and truth. Not only because of her great technical abilities (needed for such a demanding baroque repertoire) but, what is even more- because of the sharing. Sharing the emotions, delivering the hidden messages and, actually, giving the “Peace”. And it was just like that in Berliner Philharmonie. Real tears, standing ovation and harmony through music.” (Opera World)
