The poets did well to conjoin music and medicine, in Apollo, because the office of medicine is but to tune the curious harp of man’s body and reduce it to harmony.

It is rare for such an exquisite voice to be accompanied by both extraordinary technical facility and keen musical intelligence, but this is the case with Diana Damrau. Whether she burnishes her silver tones or caresses the sweetest of high notes, Damrau impresses her audience with the wide range of vocal colours at her disposal. Returning to the Grand Théâtre with her longtime musical partner, harpist Xavier de Maistre, Diana Damrau will be giving a recital in which the transcriptions for the harp focus on the musical essentials: from the brilliance of Rossini to the pure emotion of Schubert, via the dreamy, impressionistic floating of Fauré and Debussy.
