Notes & Reviews:

Schumann's famous Eichendorff Liederkreis, Op. 39, combined with folksongs by Johannes Brahms and Benjamin Britten, and featuring improvisation on the Eichendorff poems. Following early studies with Prof. Klesie Kelly-Moog at the Cologne Music Academy, Anna Lucia Richter continued her studies in Cologne and finished her advanced study period in the summer of 2013. She has won prizes at the National Song Contest in Berlin, the Luitpold Prize at the Kissinger Summer Festival, and the Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Prize. In 2012, she won the International Robert Schumann Contest in Zwickau.

New York Times
A singer of substantial talent and expressive gifts ... a promising operatic talent in the making.

Los Angeles Times
A luminous young soprano.

SF Gate
Nothing short of dazzling.
