Wagner: Wesendonck Lieder

About the album

For this recording of Wagner’s Wesendonck-Lieder, Joyce DiDonato is joined by the original instrument ensemble Il Pomo d’Oro and Maxim Emelyanychev.

The recording is available in digital format exclusively on Apple Music.

Joyce DiDonato: such an intelligent singer. The way her Baroque-schooled mezzo meets the transparency of Il Pomodoro's period instruments and conductor Maxim Emelyanychev's sensitivity to the textures and line of Wagner's love songs make these performances beautifully affecting.
