Anne Schwanewilms

  • Soprano


Anne Schwanewilms was born into a musical family in Gelsenkirchen in the Ruhr, but studied gardening before training as a singer with the great German bass Hans Sotin in Cologne. (Gardening remains her favourite relaxation, and between engagements she is creating a new garden with her husband Heinz at their lakeside home near Berlin). She learned her craft between 1991 and 1996 as a member of the Cologne Opera ensemble, and began as a mezzo, singing, among other roles, Dorabella in Mozart's Cosi fan Tutte. Ten years ago it became clear that her voice was settling into a soprano.
