In War and Peace - New from Joyce DiDonato and Warner Classics
One of opera's most outspoken and impassioned personalities, Joyce DiDonato reminds us with her new album, In War and Peace that music "soothes turmoil, threatens power and the status quo, and gloriously exalts the spirit". Her selection of arias demonstrates how powerfully Baroque opera explores the extremes of human nature - from the tumult of Handel's Scenes of Horror, Scenes of Woe to Purcell's descent into despair, Dido's Lament.
