Joyce DiDonato: Songplay

Songplay was awarded Grammy Award “Best Classical Vocal Solo Album” (2020)“This …deserves to be heard by anyone who admires exceptional singing and instrumental craftsmanship, whether in opera, jazz or popular music.” Daily Mail on Joyce DiDonato’s Songplay

The singer who “compels us to listen actively, to hear things anew” (Gramophone) turns her profuse talents to Songplay, a unique programme fusing great songs from early Baroque to American Classics, scanning from “pure classical” to “improvised jazz” versions.  Joyce DiDonato seamlessly moves in and out of various genres and rhythms within individual pieces, drawing unexpected and serendipitous connections across centuries and genres.

Programme includes ‘jazzed-up’ vocal classics Caro Mio Ben, Amarilli, mia bella, Nel cor piu mio non sento and more.
