Four Last Songs | Barbican Hall, London | October 2009

“….sung with cool detachment yet haunting beauty by the soprano Anne Schwanewilms…”

Daily Telegraph

“As the evening’s centrepiece, Anne Schwanewilms joined the BBCSO for a serene performance of Strauss’s ‘Four Last Songs’. Her soprano behaved like a solo obbligato instrument, perfectly placed within the translucent orchestra textures, and soaring with entirely human fervour into Strauss’s magic sphere of night.”
