Anne Sofie von Otter (mezzo-soprano)

Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter’s versatility, and an ever-evolving repertoire, has played a key role in sustaining her international profile, built across a career now spanning more than three decades at the very top of her profession.

One of today's most recorded artists, von Otter’s lengthy, exclusive relationship with Deutsche Grammophon produced a wealth of acclaimed recordings, including a collaboration with pop legend Elvis Costello on For the Stars, and her double CD Douce France, recorded for Naïve Classique, which received a Grammy Award in 2015 for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album.

Equally recognised for her exemplary work on stage, von Otter has maintained a regular presence in the most important venues around the globe, from an early position as the superlative Octavian (Der Rosenkavalier) of her generation to her more recent creations of roles in world premieres of Thomas Adès and Sebastian Fagerlund. Other recent highlights include Countess Geschwitz in Christoph Marthaler’s production of Berg’s Lulu at Staatsoper Hamburg; Madame de Croissy (Dialogues des carmélites) at Théâtre des Champs-Élysées; Leocadia Begbick (Weill’s Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny) at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; and L’Opinion Publique in Offenbach’s Orphée aux enfers (released on DVD by Unitel).

Von Otter was part of two special commemorative concert events which were streamed worldwide: Das Lied von der Erde with the Berlin Philharmonic and Claudio Abbado for the 100th anniversary of Mahler’s death; and in new arrangements by Aulis Sallinen of Sibelius’ songs with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Hannu Lintu for the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth.
