Opera News describes Renée Fleming’s voice as “full and pearly” and Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 as “tailor-made” for her “with its lush, soaring melodies tinged with folksong, dramatic climaxes to show off her upper range, and a slightly sentimental text steeped in Americana”. Framing this atmosphere recollection of summer evenings in Tennessee and Schubert’s masterful early Romantic songs, Maestro van Zweden leads the orchestra in Wagner’s unforgettably ecstatic celebration of love and Shostakovich’s enchanting homage to Haydn – a symphony which set out to be as grand as Beethoven’s Ninth but ended up as a light and frivolous expression of simple happiness.
