Anne Sofie von Otter, mezzo-soprano, and Kristian Bezuidenhout, piano

NEC’s Jordan Hall

Elegant Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter is universally recognized for her versatility, zest for unconventional partnerships, and superlative skill at conveying a work’s textual meaning through her insightful musical interpretation. South African-born Australian pianist Kristian Bezuidenhout, one of today’s most exciting keyboard artists, collaborates with von Otter on a program featuring selections by Franz Schubert and Fanny Mendelssohn alongside a collection of Swedish songs. 

Von Otter, an audience favorite for major roles in the world’s largest opera houses throughout her storied career, truly shines in the intimate setting of a song recital. In this performance, Bezuidenhout and von Otter create an atmosphere where subtlety, detail, and delicacy showcase the interplay of text, music, meaning, and drama in a compelling and unforgettable recital.

“Von Otter’s generous personality is reflected in the way she puts over every item, with care for text and a honeyed sweetness of tone.”
