Annalena Persson


"As for Persson, everything about her suggests a Wagner singer to be reckoned with. She has an almost animal presence, vital and impetuous, and her voice has a luxurious velvet tone. In Persson, Isolde's awareness of her power of sexual healing was implicit, reflected in a glowing intensity of sound and sustained right through to her ultimate transfiguration."
