Anja Harteros with Wagner, Berg & Mahler

ANJA HARTEROS, Soprano
MÜNCHNER PHILHARMONIKER
VALERY GERGIEV

 

Critics and audiences alike have nothing but rapturous praise for the voice of Anja Harteros. Some experts even regard her as the greatest female singer of the present day. With her broad palette of vocal colours, she is the ideal interpreter of Romantic songs for voice and orchestra. The fin de siècle atmosphere of Berg’s Seven Early Songs, Wagner’s Tristanesque conjuration of love in his Wesendonck-Lieder and Mahler’s focus on a world of private introspection in his Rückert-Lieder offer Anja Harteros ample scope for her multifaceted musical sensitivity.
