Schubert: Lieder

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard

Her "Im Abendrot D. 799" is Kim Novak in Vertigo. Her "Totengräbers Heimweh" is Eli Walach in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Nor is von Otter dumb.

Her "Ständchen 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.
