FLEMING Opera scenes

Sir Georg Solti

“Here’s a singer who’s reached complete maturity as an artist, revelling in her vocal and interpretative powers. To the warm and vibrant voice is added an imagination that places her in the first rank of today’s lyric sopranos. The eclectic, ambitious programme lets us hear every aspect of her art. For Sir Georg this is obviously a labour of love, nowhere more so than in the postlude to Daphne, most sensuously done; he and the LSO provide worthy support for their superb soloist. The recording is faultless, capturing voice and orchestra in ideal balance.”
