The orchestra was in particularly fine form. The Brahms Serenade was exquisite--a piece I had never heard before. Anne Sofie von Otter has one of the finest voices singing today.Pitch, phrasing, emotion--she has it all. Check out her Grieg recording and her crossover album w/Elvis Costello and her latest jazz effort!
