18 August at 14.00 in the Glass Hall. Anne-Sofie von Otter has allied herself with one of the Denmark's best chamber ensembles, the Danish String Quartet.
Only a few opera singers span such a multifaceted repertoire as the Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter. She made her debut in Basel in 1982, and since then she has cemented her status as a superstar in opera houses around the world, from the Metropolitan Opera in New York to the Royal Opera House in London and the State Opera in Vienna.
Von Otter has collaborated with many of the greatest orchestras and conductors of our time. The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra with Alan Gilbert and the Concertgebouw Orchestra conducted by David Robertson. The Danish String Quartet has taken the world by storm. The New York Times has described the Danish String Quartet as "a cornucopia of strings served with youthful energy and sensuous spices." They have a particularly captivating playing style that radiates great technical skill and musical quality, an enormous joy of playing and a refreshing approach to well-known classical works.
