Internationally acclaimed Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter has long been considered among the finest singers of her generation. Reimagined amid stunning orchestral settings, von Otter explores the intimate world of Schubert’s Lieder in the ravishing acoustics of Sir Christopher Wren’s Sheldonian Theatre. The colossal framework of Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 conquered new artistic horizons in what was to be his last completed work for orchestra.
