Recorded live at London’s celebrated Wigmore Hall, this captivating recital by Joyce DiDonato and the Brentano Quartet was conceived around Jake Heggie’s song cycle Camille Claudel: Into the Fire, a work written for DiDonato. She describes it as “one of most moving projects I’ve ever been part of.” Songs by Debussy and Strauss and a quartet movement by Guillaume Lekeu complete the program, which prompted the Financial Times to write that “the beauty and range” of DiDonato’s singing “are surely now at their impressive peak.”
