A love letter to Renée Fleming

I can tell this is going to be one of those recordings I can't listen to while working. Renée Fleming "Strauss Heroines". So why don't you sing the Marschallin more often? No one asks you? How is that possible? My dear, this is just simply gorgeous. It helps that I love it so. And it is exactly this part that I love. The language, the phrasing, the tone, the sense that above all you love it, too, all go together to make something truly wonderful. Thank you.
