Description
Although he has considerable credentials as a singer, Rufus Wainwright has shown himself to be an engaging classical composer as well. Commemorating the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death, Wainwright set nine of the Bard's sonnets to music, including nos. 20 ("A Woman's Face"), 40 ("Take All My Loves"), and 43 ("When Most I Wink"). "For me, recording this album has been a marriage made in heaven, as it combines my love of classical music with my love of pop music," Wainwright said, and fittingly he is accompanied here by Austrian soprano Anna Prohaska and Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine. The sonnets are also recited separately by such actors as William Shatner, Carrie Fisher, and Helena Bonham Carter.

"Backed in spots by the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Rufus Wainwright and his many guests pile on the gravitas while still transforming and illuminating Shakespeare's material with playful and provocative spirits. For a singer and composer who's always toyed with ways to pair pop showmanship with a classical musician's finely honed chops, [this album] feels like a natural culmination of Wainwright's many passions."—NPR
