Notes and Editorial Reviews

Swedish soprano Susanna Anderson presents a portrait album of songs and arias through a diverse range of repertoire together with the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra. Andersson has been praised for her ''dazzling vocal gymnastics'' and ''purity of tone'' and this album perfectly reinforces this reputation. From the rapid coloratura of Vivaldi and the extremes of range of Mozart's concert aria Vorrei spiegarvi, to songs like Alfven's Skogen Sover and Handel's Lascia ch'io pianga even in the first five tracks the wide variety of vocal color and flexible technique is heard. Classics such as O mio babbino caro and Strauss's Morgen conclude this impressive debut album.
