Into The Fire (Live At Wigmore Hall) - Joyce DiDonato

$ 14.99 $ 17.98

DiDonato and her collaborators here…carry the colour of voice and string quartet through the recital…And the highest compliment I can pay all three of the arrangers is that it sounds as if those sounds were conceived and swathed this way all along…[Into the Fire] is a wonderful calling card for DiDonato. Small wonder she has become something of a muse for Heggie.

Recorded live at London's celebrated Wigmore Hall, this captivating recital by Joyce DiDonato and the Brentano Quartet was conceived around Jake Heggie's song cycle Camille Claudel: Into the Fire, a work written for DiDonato - she describes it as "one of most moving projects I've ever been part of". Songs by Debussy and Strauss and a quartet movement by Guillaume Lekeu complete the program, which prompted the Financial Times to write that "the beauty and range" of DiDonato's singing "are surely now at their impressive peak."
