Joyce DiDonato consistently earns ecstatic reviews wherever she sings. Among the world’s most charismatic performers, honours bestowed upon Joyce DiDonato include the Met’s Beverly Sills Award, the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Singer of the Year, the Richard Tucker Award - given to a single American singer annually, second place in Plácido Domingo’s Operalia, and prizes from the George London Foundation, the ARIA Award Foundation and the Sullivan Foundation.

A favourite with Wigmore Hall audiences, Joyce DiDonato opened the 2008/9 season with a programme which included a selection of songs by Fauré, Head and Hahn, and arias by Rossini and Handel.
 

“Everybody’s talking about mezzo Joyce DiDonato these days. This star product of Houston Opera Studio has been conquering opera houses around the world. If you wonder what all the fuss is about, listen to this live recital from London earlier this year. The voice has a gorgeous silvery sheen in its higher registers, seamlessly changing to molten gold as it descends”
 

The Dallas News

DiDonato radiates not just the serene and sinister side of Venice but its romantic melancholy, as depicted in six songs by Reynaldo Hahn. Rossini’s La regatta veneziana showcases the American’s florid brilliance, Fauré’s Cing Mélodies her seductive sense of line
Financial Times

The purity and lightness of her tone are enchanting
Sunday Telegraph

Such force, such lustre! Joyce DiDonato’s mezzo-soprano is very impressive … over the 66 minutes there’s enough quiet silky legato and subtle phrasing to delight lovers of the intimate. The jewel is the Venezia set by Reynaldo Hahn. And Julius Drake at the piano spins his own magic
