Widely acclaimed as one of the world’s most accomplished singers both in opera house and concert hall, Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter returns to Hong Kong after her Hong Kong debut concert in 2008, in an eagerly anticipated programme of art songs, including songs by Mahler and Liszt for the anniversary years of the two composers, as well as songs by Scandinavian composers, Grieg, Sibelius and Tor Aulin.

From Brahms, who knew Mahler and made something of an enemy of Liszt, come two songs with viola accompaniment, the first a lullaby on Joseph Lieber, Joseph Mein. In addition to his songs, a rare piece of chamber music by Liszt is included, his evocative Romance Oubliée, originally written for a new instrument, the viola alta. Coming with Anne Sofie von Otter, apart from her long-time pianist partner Bengt Forsberg, is the young Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto who is acclaimed worldwide as one of the best of his generation. 

Acclaimed in opera houses for a wide range of roles and in concert halls for her performance of art songs, von Otter has also made numerous recordings which have won her numerous prestigious record awards, among them the disc of Grieg songs and ‘Mots d’amour’, a recording of Chaminade's mélodies, have won Gramophone Awards. Her first Lieder recital in Hong Kong is certainly an event not to be missed.
