Handel, Purcell, Pärt, Shaw & More


Megastar mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter plies her singular burnished-silver style to an eclectic program of old and new, sacred and secular. Handel duets with rising countertenor Daniel Moody harken back to von Otter’s early breakthrough Baroque performances, while Arvo Pärt’s otherworldly devotionals and Caroline Shaw’s soulful PBO commissions channel her crossover versatility. Nic McGegan steers this voyage through far-ranging soundscapes.

Anne Sofie von Otter “has honed the art of singing to such a point that she is purely expressive, no matter what she’s singing. She can be brassy … or she can be purely, limpidly beautiful.”
