In the future Miss von Otter perhaps will be remebered mostly as an absolute masterful Lieder singer. Lieder has dominated in her long career. But as we know, she has also made very many recordings of and performances in opera: Octavian, Alceste, Orpheus, Carmen, all the important Mozart operas and so on. Believe it or not, she has also sung Wagner's Waltraute in Götterdämmerung! To my mind her very greatest impact as an opera singer of world class is to find in her Handel recordings. Here she is in her element, indeed. The most difficult of arias with the best and most secure technique you could wish for. Never forcing. It's a truly great experience to hear her in this music! Don't miss this CD even if you already have many of her complete Händel recordings!
