Praised by the New York Times for her “vocal refinement” and “pliant lyricism,” Anne Schwanewilms is renowned across Europe for her rapturous German lieder interpretations. In this much anticipated New York recital debut, the legend in the making brings her soaring, crystalline voice to the impeccably designed Alice Tully Hall for a compelling program of Strauss and more.

“Her voice is ideally suited to the demands of Strauss, capable of transparent lightness at the top, but with enough weight to power through a long phrase.” Washington Post
“Sheer unforced beauty.” The Arts Desk

There is no late seating.
