Description
You have to both adore great music and love performing it to work as hard as one must to become an opera diva. Those burning desires are palpable in these performances by Renée Fleming, which include the exquisite duet from Lakmé (sung with Susan Graham), an orchestral arrangement of "Danny Boy," Berlioz's Villanelle, "Nana" and "Canción" by de Falla, Les Filles de Cadix by Delibes, and "Vendulka's Lullaby" by Smetana.

"An album full of goodies … designed both to showcase Fleming's voracious appetite for all kinds of music and to appeal to the widest possible audience. Fleming has managed to preserve the quality of the loveliest voice among the world's top sopranos these past 20 years. Indeed, she might easily be described as a guilty pleasure herself."—The Times (London)

"There are some worthy additions to her catalog: a lush aria from Dvorák's 'Armida' that recalls her hit with his 'Rusalka'; a piece from Corigliano's 'The Ghosts of Versailles' that incorporates vivid storytelling; and melting performances of songs by Canteloube, Rachmaninoff and Duparc…. Lang-Lessing and the Philharmonia Orchestra supply rich sound and generous emotion that match Fleming's sensibility."—Newark Star Ledger
