From Voice of Nature: the Anthropocene
This song is featured on my new album with the brilliant Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Our theme was the natural world, as both inspiration and victim of human life. Reynaldo Hahn’s setting of a poem by Paul Verlaine captures the transcendent moment when a couple hold their breath at the perfection of moonrise over a forest. During the shutdown at the start of the pandemic, I found this kind of consolation in long walks outdoors near my home. But in “the age of man,” the climate crisis continues to worsen. I fear that moments like this will only be memories if we don’t act, together and decisively, now.All Videos

Voice of Nature: the Anthropocene
Voice of Nature: The Anthropocene is Renée's new album with Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Inspired by the solace Renée found while hiking near her Virginia home during lockdown, the album explores the inspiring connection to the natural world in Romantic-era song and, with three world-premiere recordings, highlights the peril and fragility of the planet today. She remarks, “This music begins in a time almost two centuries ago, when people had a profound connection to the beauty of nature. Now, in the anthropocene — the age of man — we see the effects of our own activity, and the fragility of our environment. Nature has been so good to us: we have not been so good to nature.”
