Renée Fleming Recital Review

After singing the New Year's Eve concert in Dresden, the soprano soared back to North America to perform a recital on January 5 at the Grand Théâtre de Québec for Le Club Musicale de Québec with Hartmut Höll on piano. Works on the recital included such composers as Korngold, Schoenberg, Duparc, Mehldau and Strauss, as well as encores with Puccini, Leoncavallo and Zandonai. Perhaps the best quote in the review: 
"La diva y flottait comme une reine dans son bain de lait."

The recital tour will continue through January with stops in Washington D.C., New York, Ann Arbor, San Juan, Montréal and Philadelphia.
