Renée Fleming - Distant Light download album

Distant Light is Renée Fleming's first foray into the hypnotic world of Scandinavian music. For her first new studio album in three years she has chosen to inspire and provoke with a daring mix of music. The title comes from a poem in a new song cycle dedicated to Renée and here receiving its world premiere recording: Anders Hillborg's The Strand Settings. At once atmospheric, elegiac and unsettling, the work was crafted with Ms. Fleming's creamy voice in mind, wrote the New York Times at its first performance in 2013

Nearly 58 years old when the recording was released in early 2017, Renée Fleming was obviously not content to retread familiar territory. True, she delivers a standard repertory (and quintessentially Fleming) performance in Samuel Barber's Knoxville, Summer of 1915, Op. 24, her just slightly smokier voice fitting Barber's lush setting of the James Agee text especially well.
