Anne-Sofie von Otter, considered by the critics to be one of the best mezzo sopranos of her generation, has performed in the world’s finest auditoriums, released numerous records and received prestigious awards such as the Grammy for Best Classical Vocal Performance, and a Diapason d’Or. Furthermore, her versatility and her innovative spirit have driven her to seek out terrain beyond lyrical music, collaborating with artists such as Elvis Costello and the pianist Brad Mehldau.

Brooklyn Rider are four classical musicians who play with the energy and verve of young rock stars. Acclaimed as the future of chamber music, their live performances are more akin to that of a vital and creative ensemble of the 21st Century than a traditional chamber quartet.

The combination of Anne-Sofie von Otter and Brooklyn Rider weaves magic on the stage, and their eclectic repertoire, with So many things, features a vast range of different artists such as John Adams, Nico Muhly, Philip Glass, Elvis Costello, Janacek and Björk.
