As Alex Ross notes, "Neruda Songs," Lorraine Hunt Lieberson's recording with James Levine's Boston Symphony Orchestra, is at #3 on Amazon. And we don't mean under "classical music." The album is looking down at Justin Timberlake, the Beatles, and John Mayer.
Here's NPR's feature on "Neruda," with Levine, Ross and composer Peter Lieberson - the late singer's widower - doing interviews. How sad to read that Lieberson spoke from the hospital, where he's being treated for lymphoma.
