Notes & Reviews:

A new priority album of the very best from the world's favorite soprano, released to coincide with a major international TV appearance

The Art of Nenee Fleming brings together 18 defining tracks spanning Renne's finest Decca recordings, including favorite arias by Pucini, Handel and Gershiwin and duets with Bryn Terfel and Placido Domingo

Four special bonus tracks reflect Renee's prominence beyond classical repertoire with two Broadwy clasics, Amazing Grace - which she memorable sang at the site of the World Trade Centre and a brande new version of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah

More information, including what Renee will perform and international broadcast schedules will follow as we get it. We expect primetime broadcasts in many international regions - we already know highlights will be broadcast by ABC in the US on June 5th
