Introduction & encounter with Giulio d'Alessio (Il Pomo d’Oro)
Moderation : Katelijne Boon
The American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, who we welcomed to BOZAR three years ago for a memorable evening devoted to Drama Queens, is back again to sing us some of her most beautiful baroque airs, symbols of musical harmony in an often troubled world. Great masters like Monteverdi, Purcell, Händel, Leo and Jommelli, have expressed these contrasts. Interpreted as they are by a singer with a personality as strong as that of DiDonato, these airs with their subtle nuances rediscover all their former sparkle.
Joyce DiDonato is doing us the honour of starting her world tour here in BOZAR!
CD RELEASE - A signing session will be organised after the concert.
