The Inner Voice: The Making of a Singer

By Renee Fleming
The fascinating personal story of one of the most celebrated talents in today's music scene
The star of the Metropolitan Opera's recent revival of Dvorak'sRusalka, soprano Renee Fleming brings a consummately beautiful voice, striking interpretive talents, and compelling artistry to bear on performances that have captivated audiences in opera houses and recital halls throughout the world. In "The Inner Voice" a book that is the story of her own artistic development and the autobiography of her voice this great performer presents a unique and privileged look at the making of a singer and offers hard-won, practical advice to aspiring performance artists everywhere. From her youth as the child of two singing teachers through her years at Juilliard, from her struggles to establish her career to her international success, "The Inner Voice" is a luminous, articulate, and candid self-portrait of a contemporary artist and the most revelatory examination yet of the performing life.

"Those of You Who Perform--musicians and dancers--will have by now practiced perhaps three thousand hours a year times fifteen years, which equals forty-five thousand hours Which means collectively that you as a group will have practiced eleven million hours. Challenge the idea that the arts are for a select few--teach, make more people love what you love, and help them to understand why you dedicated those eleven million hours in the first place."
