Aspen Music Festival: Festival Orchestra: Renée Fleming, Pines of Rome



Klein Music Tent, 960 N 3rd Street, Aspen, CO 81611

Event Description

"Get ready for orchestral and vocal magic when 2023 Kennedy Center honoree Renée Fleming performs songs by Richard Strauss and a world premiere by Alan Fletcher. It’s been said that Strauss had a lifelong love affair with the soprano voice. He was undoubtedly inspired in part by his wife Pauline, a famous soprano in her day. Strauss’s writing for sopranos fully displays their vocal prowess, and some of his most memorable operatic roles are for the soprano voice. Renée Fleming has long had an extraordinary affinity for Strauss’s music, creating unforgettable heroines on the opera stage. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear her in some of Strauss’s most sensuous and moving orchestral songs. With Robert Spano, conductor; Renée Fleming, soprano; Aspen Festival Orchestra"
