Joyce DiDonato: Songplay
Wednesday 24 June 7.30pm (ends approx. 9.20pm)From £5.00 to £60.00
Snape Maltings Concert Hall
Part of Aldeburgh Festival
The American mezzo-soprano brings together world-class musicians from the varied worlds of opera, jazz and tango in the pure pleasure of improvisation, experimentation and exchange.
Together they create their own musical language, finding surprising connections between 17th-century Italian arias and jazz classics. Working with her hand-picked band led by pianist and arranger Craig Terry, DiDonato draws inspiration from Cavalli and Chet Baker in equal measure. The languishing heart in Giordani’s Caro mio ben is as emotionally charged as Jerry Bock’s hopeful Will he like me?.
Booking opens on Tuesday 18 February at 10am
