The composer, conductor and pianist Frédéric Chaslin has written to BrontëBlog announcing the world premiere recording of Cathy's Vocalise from his opera Wuthering Heights. It is included on the latest CD by no other than one of the most celebrated sopranos today, Diana Damrau:
Diana Damrau
Unforgettable Songs from Vienna, Broadway and Hollywood
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by David Charles Abell
With Rolando Villazón

The soprano Diana Damrau stars in the operas of Mozart, Verdi, Rossini, Donizetti and Strauss, but Forever is the ‘soundtrack of her life’ in the form of much-loved numbers from operetta, musicals and the movies – including Die Fledermaus, My Fair Lady, West Side Story, The Phantom of the Opera and The Little Mermaid. “This music shows a side of me that many people don’t know yet,” she says. “These tunes are great art, because they are associated with unforgettable moments in everyone’s lives.”
The last track of the album is Cathy's Vocalise. You can listen to it (courtesy of Mr. Chaslin) here.
