I love Renee Fleming's recording of Strauss's Four Last Songs with the Munich Philharmonic. There's a generosity about Fleming that like in general -- how she shares and gives to the audience. And at the sometime it's technically amazing -- there's that sense of legato, and the way you feel she has an endless breath and can carry a phrase through without forcing it.
