Mezzo-Soprano Anne Sofie von Otter to Give Recitals at Schubert Club’s International Artist Series

By Afton Wooten

Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter will perform two recitals at the Schubert’s Club International Artist Series.

Von Otter and pianist Kristian Bezuidenhout’s performances will feature both vocal and piano works by Franz Schubert, W.A. Mozart, and Swedish composer Adolf Fredrik Lindblad. Bezuidenhout will use the Graf(Rieger) piano from Schubert Club’s historic keyboard collection.

The Swedish mezzo-soprano has made an international career on the opera stage, as a recital singer, and is one of today’s most recorded artists.

The recitals which open the concert series will be held on Nov. 1 & 3 at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in St. Paul, MN.

Upcoming vocal-centered concerts in the International Artists Series include “Bach Collegium Japan” featuring Masaaki Suzuki and baritone Roderick Williams.
