Composers: Various

Number of Discs: 10
Label: Sony Classical
CD Release Date: November 3, 2016

Sony Classical is pleased to announce the reissue of nine of Kathleen Battle’s foremost achievements in the studio – ranging from gems of the classical soprano repertoire to jazz, folk, spirituals, pop, and more – plus a tenth disc featuring a new compilation of the legendary soprano’s RCA releases.

Battle, who starred in more than 220 Met performances over the course of her career, has captivated international audiences, taken home numerous awards – among them five Grammys and London’s Olivier Award, the first American singer to win that prestigious prize – and become one of classical music’s best-selling artists.

She is partnered in this set by such great artists as James Levine, Lorin Maazel, Wynton Marsalis, Jessye Norman, Christopher Parkening, Andre Previn, Jean-Pierre Rampal, Frederica von Stade, Vangelis, and many others.

The Washington Post called her lyric soprano “one of the very few most beautiful in the world.”
 
“Some singers have little instinct but do have the intellect to balance technical and musical issues. Some have instinct and a beautiful voice but less intellect. I had never come across a more complete talent than hers.” – James Levine
