Contemporary opera composer Jake Heggie said of her mezzo-soprano voice in Gramophone magazine, “The staggering, joyful artistry of Joyce DiDonato reminds us that in any generation there are a few giants … Those who know her repertoire are in awe of her gifts, and those who know nothing of it are instantly engaged.” Having performed at Ann Arbor’s University Music Society before, DiDonato’s debut performance of Handel’s “Ariodante” was a fan favorite.
Now returning for her UMS recital debut, she is set to perform Schubert’s “Winterreise.”
“A dramatic song cycle of 24 poems, usually sung by a tenor, that journeys through grief to despair,” said event organizers. “She is joined for this very special duo recital by Yannick Nézet-Séguin, music director of both the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Metropolitan Opera, who trades in his baton for a piano.”
This performance will be held Sunday, Dec. 16. at 4 p.m. and will be performed in German with English supertitles. For more information about the performance and ticket prices go online to ums.org.
