Anna Lucia Richter. Ammiel Bushakevitz. Liisa Randalu
Brahms: Twilight hours

"The voice sounds as if it has never sounded different. Warm, full-bodied, a bit like eggplant – and still girlish. In short: perfect for Brahms". This is how Christine Lemke-Matwey raved about Anna Lucia Richter's CD debut as a mezzo-soprano in her SWR review. Together with the spirited pianist Ammiel Bushakevitz and the versatile violist Liisa Randalu, the soprano from Cologne presents a very personal cross-section of Brahms' song oeuvre between 1852 and 1888. The spectrum ranges from tender love poetry to dark romanticism and stylized folk song.
