Liederabend | Concertgebouw, Amsterdam | September 2007

“Tuesday evening Schwanewilms showed us again why she is one of the most interesting singers of her generation, ably served by the piano playing of Manuel Lange…The CD she has recorded of Strauss songs is fabulous, but nothing can beat a live performance, especially in the case of Anne Schwanewilms. She really is the classic example of how to combine perfect singing technique with apparent effortlessly produced sounds…Her sound is heavenly, sometimes so real you think you can touch it…A superb recital…”


“After the magnificent CD that came out earlier this year, the wish to hear her live increased. Could she realise our hopes that she has become the leading Strauss singer of today, knowing that she has to fight the shadow of Elisabeth Schwarzkopf? Yes, she could!”
