Only Anne Sofie von Otter could have come up with a program as varied and wide-ranging. And only Von Otter could hold it together so seamlessly by finding the resonances between these very different pieces, bringing them out with a rare ability of embracing different singing styles and expressive registers. To paraphrase Bernstein in “A Simple Song,” Anne Sofie von Otter never fails to sing like she likes to sing.

From Liszt to Pärt and from Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony to Richard Rodgers’s Sound of Music, Von Otter is supported by her long-time accompanist Bengt Forsberg, here at the organ instead of his usual piano. At various points in the program they are joined by a number of musical friends in the organ loft of St. James’s Church in central Stockholm – the very church where the young Von Otter began her singing career as a chorister and, together with Forsberg, gave one of her very first public concerts.
