What’s interesting about this concert:

• Nominated for 17 Grammy awards, Fleming is one of the most celebrated singers of our time.
• Strauss wrote these songs for his wife Pauline. Though they had a tumultuous relationship—she once threw a score at him in rehearsal—she remained his constant muse.
• Rachmaninoff underwent hypnosis to overcome crippling anxiety and depression. “You will begin your concerto…it will be excellent,” was his mantra.

This concert is part of Series 2.
