About

'The Classic Albums’ is a 70th birthday tribute celebrating the many facets of Dame Kiri Te Kanawa’s art.

This 6 CD set is a 70th birthday celebration of an artist who has had an astonishing career, captivating audiences the world over, from the opera stage to fame on the small screen. Recently appearing in the third series of Downton Abbey, she clearly shows no signs of slowing down her schedule.

Her performance of Handel’s ‘Let the bright Seraphim’ at the 1981 wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer reached an international audience of 600 million and catapulted her to stardom.
 
She carved her distinguished reputation with the critics through the music of Mozart and Richard Strauss. Two discs in this set are dedicated to these two composers, and her fruitful relationship with conductor Sir Georg Solti. But as this 6 CD birthday set shows, these two composers comprise only a part of the story.
