Joyce DiDonato's latest release deals with "external conflict and serenity," and "internal war and peace." A direct reaction to terrorist attacks in Paris, Joyce has brought art and healing to a 21st Century struggle. In War and Peace (Erato) will be available from November 4, 2016 and can previewed through DiDonato's facebook, instagram and twitter feeds. She's already been sharing amazing quotes from the likes of David Hyde Pierce to John Elliot Gardiner to the question: In the midst of chaos, how do you find peace? (warning: DiDonato's answer is below, marked by a spoiler alert!)

Sony Classical

Joshua Bell is a fantastic violinist and conductor. He's an "Indiana Living Legend," has received the Indiana Governor's Arts Award, and grew up in Bloomington. His most recent release is called "For the Love of Brahms" and features Brahms' Concerto for Violin and Cello, his original version of the Piano Trio No. 1, and a Benjamin Britten arrangement of Robert Schumann's Adagio from the Violin Concerto. Music Director John Clare spoke to Bell about this new Sony Classical release.
