Renée Fleming Meets Anders Hillborg
10 May 2013
The sickness of angels is nothing new
I have seen them crawling like bees
Flightless, chewing their tongues, not singing.
– (From Dark Harbor XXXV, by Mark Strand)
Renée and Susan Graham team up for a "Soirée Française
23 January 2013
This month and next, Renée is joining her friend Susan Graham on a rare duo recital tour of elegant French vocal treasures, including the “Flower Duet” from Delibes’s Lakmé, the Barcarolle from Offenbach’s Les contes d’Hoffmann, Fauré’s achingly beautiful “Pavane,” and Debussy’s “Mandoline,” “Beau soir,” and “Clair de lune” (for solo piano). Other highlights include songs by Reynaldo Hahn and duets by Berlioz, Fauré, Saint-Saëns, and Messager. With pianist Bradley Moore, Renée and Susan hope to conjure the world of the Belle Époque salon, where legendary divas mixed with artists, composers, and the beau (and demi-) monde. To see the ladies'' candid chat about the program, their friendship, and their on-stage history together, click here and here. The LA Times called the recital, "Ravishing, haunting — a kind of perfumed pleasure that belongs, hélas, to a bygone era." To read the full review, click here.
