Joyce DiDonato, Antonio Pappano

Editor's Choice

In the starry echelons of the opera world, the American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato shines ever brighter. The mellow ease and flexibility with which she wields a voice of intense beauty also make her extraordinarily versatile - few will ever forget her singing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ at the BBC Last Night of the Proms, or equally her dazzling virtuoso performances of Rossini operas at the world’s leading opera houses. This varied recital, from Haydn to Broadway, with the conductor Sir Antonio (“Tony”) Pappano as her devoted pianist, is a joy throughout and the sheer life force with which DiDonato injects her supple and versatile tone is simply irresistible.
