Joyce DiDonato latest album, In War and Peace: Harmony Through Music, is a collection of baroque arias by Purcell, Handel, Monteverdi, and others from the 17th and 18th centuries divided into two sections — one addressing war, the other, peace.CD
Composer: Handel, Purcell, Monteverdi
Other participants: Maxim Emelyanychev · Il Pomo D’oro

Joyce DiDonato, a singer the Financial Times said, “can do almost anything,” explores the dichotomy of discord and harmony in times of war, through her powerful interpretation of Baroque arias. During the Baroque era, such vocal masters as Monteverdi, Purcell, Handel, Leo, Jommelli, and others expressed these striking contrasts in music of great power; now audiences will experience Ms. DiDonato’s interpretation. In War & Peace: Harmony Through Music will feature accompaniment by Il Pomo d’Oro.

Joyce DiDonato would like to thank the Pure Land Foundation for its generous support of her In War & Peace project. She would also like to thank Five Arts Foundation, as recommended by Helen Berggruen; Susan and John Singer; and Marnie and Kern Wildenthal for their additional support.

“Ms. Joyce DiDonato seemed the perfect 21st-century diva — an effortless combination of glamour, charisma, intelligence, grace and remarkable talent.”– The New York Times
