Hear Fleming talk about 'Haunted Heart' and Anne Midgette's music review
Detail from Renée Fleming's CD, Haunted Heart.
'When Did You Leave Heaven?' by Walter Bullock and Richard Whiting
'Liebst du um Schonheit' by Gustav Mahler
Lyric soprano Renée Fleming is a familiar face on the world's greatest opera stages, but on her latest CD, Haunted Heart, she makes a temporary leap to the worlds of jazz, pop and folk. Paired with guitarist Bill Frisell and pianist Fred Hersch, Fleming sings in a lower range, offering intimate interpretations of songs from Lionel Hampton, the Beatles and Joni Mitchell.
Fleming talks about her foray into jazz and music critic Anne Midgette offers her own review of the CD.
