Rossini, Heggie and Arlen live with the Kansas SO
Former Gramophone Artist of the Year and Gramophone Hall of Fame honoree, the mezzo Joyce DiDonato has just released a 'digital-only' album on iTunes.
Recorded in the town of her birth, Kansas City, with the Kansas City Symphony and Michael Stern, 'Homecoming' includes Rossini's cantata Giovanna d'Arco, and a song-cycle The Deepest Desire. Four Meditations on Love by Jake Heggie. As an encore, DiDonato sings 'Over the rainbow' from The Wizard of Oz, a number she sang to great acclaim at the Gramophone Awards when she was named Artist of the Year.
