You heard Renee Fleming in Pittsburgh????? I saw/heard the LotR Symphony conducted by Howard Shore in Pittsburgh, too, in July 2005, but the soprano soloist was the one touring with Shore, Sissel. You lucky DOG!!! Sissel was good but Fleming is a vocal GODDESS!!! (Very suited to singing for one of the Ainur!). I adored getting to attend that concert, but if Renee Fleming had been singing I think I might have died of bliss.

Oh then I was mistaken. I never realized there were several soloists. I admit I do not follow them. I do love that voice in the film. It is as classically pure as the vision shown with it. I was at the same LotR Symphony in July 2005 so it was Sissel. Having not followed these women's careers I would not know the difference in person. I still feel I was a Lucky Dog to be there though...it was magical.

Oh, Sissel was excellent. I don't think I ever read the review of a fan that wasn't ultra-pleased with her performance.

Quickly, here's a Renee Fleming website if you want to peek:

Here's Sissel:

Got to get ready for work now (I'm in U.S. central time), but it was great to wake up your note. It's always fun to talk and gush with a fellow LotR score fan and concert-goer.
