Why your dating life needs classical music

Why your dating life needs classical music | medici.tv - newsfeed | Scoop.it
It's easy to think of pop music as the soundtrack for a single person's life. We can recall Rihanna's voice serenading us in our car as we drive to yet another date, looking for love in a hopeless place. Even Coldplay, with their cartoonish riffs, can comfort us — but pop music can't speak to the ambiguities of our emotions the way that classical music can.

Joyce DiDonato's recording "Stella di Napoli" wins a BBC Music Magazine Award | medici.tv - newsfeed | Scoop.it

Congratulations to Joyce DiDonato who just has been nominated at the BBC Music Magazine Awards for her recording "Stella di Napoli"!


'Joyce DiDonato’s love letter to Neapolitan ‘bel canto’ is all about the voice, and as her own ‘star’ shines brightly, what a voice it proves to be. Vocal pyrotechnics hold no terrors, and her creamy mezzo leaves no nuance unturned. Sensitively accompanied by Riccardo Minasi and his Lyon forces, it’s a case of ‘hear Naples.... and live!’.' (BBC Music Magazine Awards)
