Anne Sofie Von Otter: 10 Classic Albums (11 CD Limited Edition Box Set)

In a recording career spanning more than 30 years, almost exclusively on Deutsche Grammophon, Anne Sofie von Otter has created a discography of exceptional range and quality. There can be few artists anywhere who are able and happy to sing Kurt Weill as well as Jacques Offenbach, John Dowland as well as Elvis Costello but for Anne Sofie von Otter, every performance is the result of considered choices and a fierce commitment to the musical demands made of her.

A three-act tour de force . . . Anne Sofie von Otter in the title role leaves you feeling breathless.
- Record Review / Scot on Sunday / 21. November 2004

Review
With Bengt Forsberg providing immaculate support, it`s a wholly cherishable rescue-act, unbridled pleasure from first track to last and an entrancing journey of discovery . . . an unmissable prospect -- and generous measure, too . . . --Record Review / Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone (London) / 01. September 2005

At the centre of the recital are the `Seven Early Songs` of Alban Berg. The first is `Nacht`, which is also the longest and most readily memorable . . . Von Otter`s draining the voice of all vibrato helps create the sense of watchful stillness, just as in the sixth song, `Liebesode`, it makes for an almost other-worldly dreaminess, deepening to a full-bodied passion as the rose scent is borne to the love-bed.
