Joyce DiDonato is the Recipient of the 2018 »Glashütte Original MusicFestivalAward«
‘Joyce DiDonato is an artist who does not differentiate between life and art. She devotes the same enthusiasm and the same standard of perfection to social activism as she does to the preparation of her opera roles and concerts. As a colleague, I admire Joyce; on behalf of the Music Festival and our sponsor Glashütte Original, I am delighted at this fantastic prize-winner,’ said Jan Vogler, Intendant of the Dresden Music Festival.
Past winners of the 25,000 Euro award include Steven Isserlis and Hilary Hahn.
