The last show in Ciclo Fronteras will feature mezzosoprano Anne Sofie von Otter and the American quartet Brooklyn Rider, who’ll perform the best pop songs as part of a project named For Sixty Cents, whose record is being released soon.
Anne Sofie von Otter (Stockholm, Sweden, 1955) is an internationally acclaimed mezzosoprano whose vocal technique takes her across different vocal registers. Coming to Madrid, she’ll show the wonders she can do with her voice at the Chamber Music Hall of the National Auditorium of Music. Together with Brooklyn Rider, she’ll depart from the established classical music path to add a new twist to a number of iconic pop songs.
The Swedish singer and the American ensemble will perform works by John Adams, Philip Glass, Elvis Costello and Björk, among others. At the concert, you can expect all-time melodies with a different, contemporary touch.
