In Concert With Camilla Tilling: A Sweet Scandinavian Sampler

By ANNE MIDGETTE [NY Times, 15 May 2006]
It is always a mistake to speculate, as a listener, what a performer might be thinking. But it was tempting to project onto the Swedish soprano Camilla Tilling, who sang at Weill Recital Hall on Friday evening, a desire to focus her program on ravishingly pretty music. Ms. Tilling has a lovely voice, and her program featured some of the prettiest songs in the Scandinavian and German repertory: Grieg’s “With a Water Lily,” Sibelius’s “Black Roses,” Schubert’s “An Silvia” and “Im Fr¸hling,” Strauss’s “Rosenband.”
