So Many Things 2: Anne Sofie von Otter & Brooklyn Rider

Pop and Classical with no dividing wall.

In her latest project the Swedish mezzo soprano Anne Sofie von Otter joins forces with the ground-breaking string quartet Brooklyn Rider – an album with music by iconic artists from both classical and pop music. In this second of two concerts in Troldsalen you can listen to Björk's Cover Me and Hunter, and songs by Elvis Costello and Kate Bush.

'So Many Things … so much fascinating and wonderful music out there to discover, to perform and to record. This disc is about music from our days: 1990s to 2015. I am bringing two worlds together on So Many Things. In fact I don't see them as two worlds at all, but just plain old good, interesting, attractive music that moves and inspires me,' says Anne Sofie von Otter.

The Grammy-winning mezzo has previously demonstrated her great talent for juggling genres, as she did in collaborating with Elvis Costello and again two years ago in her Bergen International Festival performance of French chansons.

American Brooklyn Rider perform with the energy level of young rock stars and have been dubbed 'the future of chamber music'. The quartet celebrated its tenth anniversary last season with fifteen commissioned works, and consistently receives equally enthusiastic reviews from all quarters – classical, world music and rock.
