Renée Fleming & Yannick Nézet-Séguin: Voice Of Nature – The Anthropocene

Artist: Renée Fleming, soprano – Yannick Nézet-Séguin, piano
Label: Decca

Renée Fleming explores how music’s relationship with nature can be relevant for the age of humans. Looking back to the Romantic era with Liszt, Grieg, Fauré, and Hahn
and looking forward with new commissions from Nico Muhly, Caroline Shaw and Kevin Puts, “The music on the album begins in a time almost two centuries ago, when people had a profound connection to the beauty of nature. Now we have reached a moment when we see all too clearly the effects of our own activity, and the fragility of our environment.” – Renée Fleming

Genre: Vocal/Opera
