Anne Sofie Von Otter Serves Up Two Sides of French Song
"The love of Sweden's most famous singer for the French language is well known. Anne Sofie von Otter performs this album with exceptional sensitivity and intelligence. Von Otter's successful journeys beyond the boundaries of classical music, whether with Elvis Costello or Brad Mehldau, inform her unique view of two centuries of French Chanson, from Mélodies by Fauré and Debussy to Barbara, Piaf, Ferre, Moustaki, and Trenet. United by the magic of words and the emotion of simple and sensitive music, these melodies are timeless treasures of the French heritage and spirit, which this great artist performs with her legendary elegance."
