Joyce DiDonato "Debriefs" her Carnegie Hall Residency

Is this becoming a Master Class blog? Maybe. But that's not important right now. What's important is this interview with Joyce DiDonato, in which she reflects on her residency at Carnegie Hall as it draws to a close. From the website: 

Celebrated mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato discusses her Carnegie Hall "Perspectives" series, ranging from the Baroque and bel canto eras to new works by Jake Heggie. She completes the series on Wednesday, March 18 with The Philadelphia Orchestra and conductor Maurizio Benini, singing the rarely heard bel canto arias and ensembles with soprano Nicole Cabell and tenor Lawrence Brownlee.

It's interesting to hear the interviewer. He does a good job, but from his questions, he doesn't seem too tuned into music in general or opera in particular. 

Listen to the interview here. The Carnegie Hall concert airs tonight, on WQXR.

P.S. If you haven't watched the Master Classes yet, do so. Now. Or soon.
