Silvesterkonzert der Berliner Philharmoniker
SIR SIMON RATTLE JOYCE DIDONATO
Antonín Dvořák Carnival Overture, op. 92
Igor Stravinsky Pas de deux from Apollon musagète
Richard Strauss Orchestral Songs Joyce DiDonato mezzo-soprano
Leonard Bernstein 3 Dance Episodes from On the Town
Leonard Bernstein Take Care of this House Joyce DiDonato mezzo-soprano
Dmitri Shostakovich Suite from The Golden Age, op. 22a
I am here for Joyce, of course. The Strauss songs were truly wonderful, both for Joyce's singing and for Sir Simon Rattle's conducting. So Strauss conducting is not dead after all. I found this on ARTE.
Take Care of this House is suitable both for 100 years of Leonard Bernstein and for the blessing on our own White House.
