In War & Peace: Harmony Through Music | Europe & USA | Winter 2016
Nov 2016 - Dec 2016

Introduction

“Perhaps my most personal project to date” is how American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato describes In War & Peace: Harmony through Music. Her ambitions for this collection of arias from Baroque operas are substantial. Working with breakout early music sensation il pomo d’oro – a group of musicians who are among the best to be found worldwide for authentic and vivid interpretation on period instruments – Joyce’s aim is to steer conversation and discourse to help all of us find peace in our lives in a dynamic way.

The programme comprises arias divided into two sections: ‘War’ and ‘Peace’. Both contain music by Purcell and Handel – including Dido’s dignified, but searing lament from Dido and Aeneas and Almirena’s haunting and heartbreaking ‘Lascia ch’io pianga’ from Rinaldo.

Askonas Holt it delighted to be working with Joyce DiDonato, il pomo d’oro and their exciting young chief conductor, Maxim Emelyanychev, to bring this exploration of conflict and resolve to cities in Europe and North America.
