A collection of favourites from one of Australia's most distinguished sopranos, Yvonne Kenny.

Both internationally and in Australia Yvonne Kenny has built an enviable reputation as a dazzling interpreter of works by Monteverdi, Handel, Mozart, Donizetti, Britten, and more recently for her interpretations of the Richard Strauss heroines. She appears regularly on the concert platform including the Edinburgh and Aix-En-Provence Festivals, BBC Promenade concerts, New York's Carnegie Hall, and London's Wigmore, Festival and Royal Albert Halls. Australian performances have included concerts with the Australian Brandenberg Orchestra, national tours for Musica Viva and the Australian Chamber Orchestra as well as guest appearances with all the symphony orchestras and with Opera Australia in a broad range of repertoire. International appearances include the Vienna State Opera, La Scala in Milan, Salzburg Festival, Berlin State Opera, Opera de Paris, English National Opera, Zurich Opera, Glyndebourne Festival Opera and the Bavarian State Opera in Munich. Kenny has a discography of over 60 international titles, including her Gold disc Simple Gifts on the ABC Classics label.
