News from the Studio

Gramophone shares the distressing news that “Great Voices Sing John Denver” is not, in fact, an Onion headline, but an actual CD slated for release in June. Opera stars like Plácido Domingo, Danielle de Niese, René Pape, and Thomas Hampson assay the artistic heights of mountain mommas.

Full marks for the cover though, you have to give them that. For a preview, one can find Domingo and Denver “dueting” on “Perhaps Love” on YouTube, a link you can find for yourself.

Next up no doubt: Alfie Boe records Rückert-Lieder, available for cheap if you order it with “Rammstein in the Cole Porter Song Book.”
