Lied Repertoire

The Lied is an underestimated art form – its short and intense quality makes it the most intimate of genres. Anna has a very broad lied repertoire, trying to combine the well-known “classics” of the German lied with songs of lesser known or forgotten composers. Having grown up in an international family and being the daughter of an interpreter, she is very much in love with language and the specific culture and mind set that is uniquely linked to a language. Thus, her repertoire includes English and Scandinavian songs as well as French mélodies, Russian песни and Spanish canciones.

Complete song cycles only listed by name – individual songs are not listed, instead there are given the names of the composers.
