Overview

She's not shy, this Anne-Sofie von Otter. Her performances are, to say the least, incredibly expressive. Her "Suleika I (D. 720)" is Brigitte Bardot in Contempt. Her "Im Abendrot (D. 799)" is Kim Novak in Vertigo. Her "Totengr�bers Heimweh" is Eli Walach in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Nor is von Otter dumb. Her interpretations are sly, subtle, and very, very sensitive. Her "Der Wanderer an den Mond (D. 870)" is hearty and lightly but profoundly philosophical. Her "Heidenr�slein (D. 257)" is earthy and artless. Her "An Silvia (D. 891)" is lively, lusty, and more than a little kinky. Nor is von Otter anything less than utterly compelling. Her "St�ndchen (D. 920)," with the Ladies of the Swedish Radio Chorus, is an attempt to lure the listener into joining them on the moonlight sward of a summer's night. Her "Ellens Gesang III (D. 839)" (aka the "Ave Maria") bids listeners to fall on their knees in prayerful supplication before the Virgin Mary, Mother of God. And Bengt Forsberg is right there with von Otter, bidding for a place among the most sympathetic accompanists of all time.
