"Symphony" — created by Sarah Brightman and producer Frank Peterson — features all-new songs, which according to notes from the singer's website "explore a bold range of styles. From the Gothic tempestuousness of 'Fleurs du Mal,' to the pleading 'Let It Rain,' 'Symphony' is a thrilling collection of material that cannot be easily categorized, yet remains accessible to lovers of a vast array of musical genres."
Brightman remarks that the recording is "a coming together of many different elements, to create consonance with harmonious textures that still hold true to a common thread running down the centre of the album. Throughout my career, I have worked in so many different styles of music. This is the first album where all of these styles come together to create a very diverse musical landscape."
"Symphony" features duets with Andrea Bocelli on "Canto Della Terra," as well as Spanish countertenor Fernando Lima ("Pasión"), Italian tenor Alessandro Safina ("Sarai Qui"), and rock superstar Paul Stanley of KISS for "I Will Be With You." The album also includes Brightman's IAAF Green Project Charity song "Running."
Brightman enjoyed early success with the 1970s British dance-hit "Starship Trooper." The soprano then segued into Britain's musical theatre scene with roles in Cats, a televised adaptation of Song and Dance, and Lloyd Webber's mass Requiem. After reaching international renown as Christine Daae in The Phantom of the Opera, Brightman returned to the stage in Aspects of Love on Broadway. Brightman continues an internationally successful concert and recording career including the albums "Encore," "Classics," "Fly," "La Luna," "Timeless," "Eden," "Fly 2," "Dive," "As I Came of Age," "Songs That Got Away" and "Sarah Brightman Sings the Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber."
