Inspired by the solace Fleming found while hiking near her Virgina home during lockdown, 'Voice of Nature' explores the centrality of nature in Romantic-era song and highlights the peril and fragility of the natural world today. A celebrated performer of art song, Fleming draws on both well-loved and lesser-known classical repertoire, with music by Edvard Grieg, Franz Liszt, Gabriel Faur� and Reynaldo Hahn. The album includes premieres of two new commissions from living composers. Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts sets 'Evening' by the American poet Dorianne Laux, and Nico Muhly collages poetry from the 17th-century English theologian Thomas Traherne with excerpts from writings by Robinson Meyer, a journalist who covers climate change, in 'Endless Space'.
