Title - 'POÈMES'
Artist - Renée Fleming
Renée Fleming’s luminous sound, brilliant stage presence and superb artistry are just a few of the qualities that make her one of the world’s most beloved and recognisable musical figures. Her freshness and purity of tone, together with an exceptional musical intelligence and grace, continue to enchant audiences worldwide.
As a passionate champion of creativity in the arts, it is so exciting when a recording accomplishes something new and interesting. This is the case with the beautiful and exceedingly interesting 'Poemes' album.
An album of French orchestral songs, something that might make Fleming's opera fans stay away sadly (but not likely), it's her account of Ravel's often-recorded Shéhérazade (that sounds, at moments uncannily like de los Angeles) that stands out here on 'Poemes.'
This is a must have for anyone who loves opera, classical music and beautiful vocal music. You can't go wrong with Renee!
