Swedish soprano Susanna Andersson presents a portrait CD 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 CD 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 colour and flexible technique is heard. Iconic repertoire such as The Queen of the Night, Anne Trulove’s aria, and Liszt’s orchestration of Erlkönig form the core of the recording before Andersson introduces the listener to new music written especially for her by outstanding Swedish composer Albert Schnelzer. Classics such as O mio babbino caro and Strauss’s Morgen conclude this impressive debut album.
