Mini-Series – EDEN


by Joyce DiDonato

Through music from across the centuries, Joyce DiDonato calls attention to a subject more timely than ever before: our individual connection to nature and its impact on our world. Discover her EDEN project:

Recorded with Il Pomo d’Oro and conductor Maxim Emelyanychev, the album samples repertoire from diverse inspirations and time periods, all of which explore an aspect of humankind’s eternal relationship with nature, and features the world premiere recording of a specially commissioned work by the Academy Award-winning composer Rachel Portman. In Joyce’s words, the selections of the program “have no boundaries – like a wild garden.”

Beyond the recording, the EDEN project encompasses a global tour of more than 45 venues across five continents, groundbreaking education programs, and multiple partnerships. This multi-faceted initiative is poised to make a long-term impact and legacy which asks each of us to consider this question: “In this time of upheaval, which seed will you plant today?”
