A genuine star of the world’s operatic stages and concert halls, Renée Fleming is one of today’s most sought-after singers, with a voice of radiant purity and a questing musicianship that gets directly to the music’s emotional pulse. The sumptuous orchestral palette of Strauss’ valedictory songs and and their mood of aching nostalgia is echoed in Elgar’s expansive symphony, a work and a composer much admired by Strauss.
'the most sheerly beautiful soprano voice on the planet'
