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.

"The Abschiedslieder that open this two-CD collection were composed between 1915 and 1921, so they are exactly contemporary with Korngold's most famous opera, Die tote Stadt. They suit Anne Sofie von Otter so perfectly that they might have been written for her....Von Otter brings beautiful tone, perfect diction and a rapt sense of submerging herself in the music. As an encore she sings Forsberg's arrangement of Korngold's most famous tune, 'Marietta's Lied' from Die tote Stadt." Gramophone
