Meeting of the Minds – The Mezzo Edition: JDD Interviews Dame Janet

Dame Janet Baker retired from the opera stage at the height of her career. (We can probably all name a singer or two who might be/have been wise to follow her example.) Thanks to The Eyes Have It for pointing out this wonderful video interview that Joyce DiDonato did with Janet Baker to honor Dame Janet's 80th birthday. It's a little bit of a mutual admiration society; Dame Janet is so so gracious, as we might expect. And as she always does with other singers, JDD brings out fascinating insights from Dame Janet. Do set aside the 31 minutes necessary to see/hear the entire interview. This video is can be found at Grammophone Magazine's website.
