Speak low

Although recent years has seen some improvement, classical music CD's and albums tend not to have very exciting covers - usually straightforward shots of the performer(s) or a painting as decoration. I was pleasantly surprised when I bought this CD of Kurt Weill songs back in the nineties, because singer Anne-Sofie von Otter is depicted in a very apt and artistic way, keeping in setting with the atmosphere of the songs. One of the best covers in the genre.
