She has been a particular force in commissioning new work from art song composers for her highly acclaimed recitals, consisting of programs from the canonic art song repertory to songs from folk and popular music traditions.... She has won four Grammy Awards and can be heard on more than 50 recordings, several of them full-length operas, including Le nozze di Figaro, The Rake’s Progress, and Messiaen’s Saint François d’Assise. The recording of Henryk Górecki’s Symphony no.3 on which she performed has sold an unprecedented one million copies... In 2007, she became the first classical vocal artist Fellow of the MacArthur Foundation, and the following year she became a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences."
