Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Celebrated for her glorious interpretations of Strauss' great soprano roles, Renee Fleming leads an international cast in this eagerly-awaited complete recording of the gorgeously lyrical opera 'Daphne', which is based on the ancient Greek myth about the daughter of river-god and earth-goddess, who surrenders herself to nature by transforming into a laurel tree, a symbol of undying love. This CD is full of lyrical sound-pictures describing the idyllic landscapes of Greek mythology.
