DiDonato finally on iTunes!

It's about time iTunes finally released one of this amazing mezzos recent albums. Where is 'Deepest Desire'?? This album is fantastic, capturing the American mezzo at her best - and it's LIVE!! One can view her stage savy persona in her 'Barbiere' and 'Hercules' DVDs. However, this recital disc lets us bask in her warm sunny mezzo as it shines down on Venice. This cleaverly programmed recital captures the essence of Venice and the wide range of composers shows DiDonato's breadth and depth of vocal ability and artistry. The two encores highlight two of her operatic specialities: Handel and Rossini. Bar none DiDonato possesses one of the finest trills in opera and the 'Non piu mesta' encore from Cenerentola is the bench mark to which all other Rossini mezzos must aspire today. Brava!

Non Piu Mesta

While Joyce Di Donato is an excellent musician, the piano accompaniment in this recording lacked energy and stylistic direction. It was disconcerting to be distracted by such an awful piano reduction. Pianists usually have their work cut out for them when playing in lieu of an orchestra, but this was the worst I have ever heard. If you are preparing for an audition, get another recording...maybe one with orchestra.

Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato began her career with a string of critically acclaimed debuts, including at La Scala and Covent Garden, as well as triumphs on concert and recital stages. She rose from virtual anonymity in 1999 to international stardom by 2002, becoming one of the most sought-after coloratura mezzo-sopranos of the early 21st century. As a coloratura mezzo, some of her greatest successes have come in Baroque repertoire, particularly the operas of Handel, such as Alcina, Ariodante, Dejanira...
