Connect with Anne Sofie

A lengthy and exclusive relationship with Deutsche Grammophon produced a wealth of recordings and numerous awards including an International Record Critics’ Award (recording artist of the year), a Grammy Award (best classical vocal performance) for Mahler’s Des Knaben Wunderhorn, and a Diapason d’Or for a recording of Swedish songs with her long-time accompanist, Bengt Forsberg. She collaborated with pop legend Elvis Costello on the disc For the Stars and in October 2010 released her first recording on the Naïve label, Love Songs, a collaboration with renowned jazz pianist Brad Mehldau. Subsequent recordings for Naïve include So Many Things – a collaboration with trailblazing string quartet Brooklyn Rider – and a double CD of mélodies and chansons entitled Douce France which received a Grammy Award for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album.

A busy concert schedule takes Anne Sofie von Otter to all corners of the world where recent appearances have included the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Washington’s National Symphony Orchestra, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, and l’orchestre Les Siècles with François-Xavier Roth. She performed Kindertotenlieder at Carnegie Hall with the orchestra of the Metropolitan Opera and Esa-Pekka Salonen and she appeared with Jonas Kaufmann and the Berliner Philharmoniker, conducted by the late Claudio Abbado, for a televised performance of Das Lied von der Erde on the 100th anniversary of Mahler’s death.
