Programme Introduction

Anne Sofie von Otter was born in Stockholm and studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London with Vera Rosza. She also attended classes in lied interpretation with Geoffrey Parsons in London and Erik Werba in Vienna.

In 1982 she joined the ensemble of the Basle Opera, where she made her operatic debut in 1983 as Alcina in Haydn's Orlando Paladino, as well as made her mark as an interpreter of Mozart and Richard Strauss.

One of the finest singers of her generation, the internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano works with the pre-eminent conductors of the day, has triumphed at the world's major opera houses and is a regular guest at leading festivals.

Von Otter has also achieved great success as a lieder interpreter, mostly in collaboration with Bengt Forsberg. In 2001 she released an album with Elvis Costello, for which she won an Edison Award. Among the conductors she has worked with repeatedly are William Christie, Marc Minkowski, Claudio Abbado, John Eliot Gardiner, and Myung-Whun Chung. In 2003 Von Otter was awarded a Rolf Schock Prize in the musical arts category.
