About the Album
This Gala of Galas was held on 27 April 1996 to celebrate James Levine’s 25th Anniversary with the Metropolitan Opera.
Renée Fleming shines in another lovely romantic aria from Gustav Charpentier’s Louise. Another gorgeous highlight, again starring Renée Fleming is the final trio from Richard Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier with Fleming (as the Marschallin) joined by two other remarkable sopranos: Anne Sophie Von Otter (Octavian) and Heidi Grant Murphy (as Sophie).IAN LACE, MUSICWEB INTERNATIONAL
