A Conversation With RENÉE FLEMING

Posted on February 20th, 2013

Renee FlemingNot many singers could entitle a recital album The Beautiful Voice and ensure that in every sense it lived up to its name. Renée Fleming’s now iconic album is shortly to have a successor and in this exclusive Sinfini podcast the glamorous American diva – perhaps the pre-eminent Strauss voice of our time – talks to Edward Seckerson about the ups and downs of an extraordinary career: her passion for Jazz, for musical theatre, and even Indie pop which she realised in her daring and, for some, controversial album Dark Hope; her concern for young talent – as exemplified in her now televised Masterclasses – and her newest role as artistic consultant for the Chicago Lyric Opera. She speaks frankly about knowing when to wind down a singing career and her choice of confidantes in this most delicate of matters will excite but not surprise all lovers of great singing.
