The Swedish contralto, Anna Larsson, was trained at the Opera Academy in Stockholm.

She has sung Des Knaben Wunderhorn with Peter Mattei and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Okku Kamu, in Sweden and on tour in Britain; the contralto part in Johannes Brahms' Alto Rhapsody with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Paavo Berglund; she has performed as a soloist in Gustav Mahler's Second Symphony with the Berliner Philharmoniker and Claudio Abbado, and in Sweden as a soloist in G. Mahler's Third Symphony with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. She met Claudio Abbado and the Berliner Philharmoniker again in the spring of 1998, when she sang J. Brahms' Alto Rhapsody in a live TV broadcast. In the spring of 1996, with the Danish Radio Sinfonietta, she recorded Lieder by Schubert and J. Brahms arranged by Max Reger.
