I had the pleasure of attending a Mahler master class with Mr. Hampson not too long ago and immediately went home to re-listen to this wonderful recording. After witnessing first hand his heart-felt connexion to these songs, hearing his renditions of them on this record brought tears to my eyes. Mr. Hampson--a self titled Mahlerite--truly connects not only with the transcendant music of these pieces, but with the poetry of them. In the master class, he lectured with such passion and deep understanding of the poetry that I now listen to these songs with new ears. My German is passible, but now I can feel the depth of emotion in Mr. Hampson's renditons. He is joined by the consummate master of orchestral accompanying, Leonard Bernstein. Leading the Vienna Philharmonic, Mr. Bernstein conducts with tenderness and passion, fire and restsraint. The perfect complement to Mahler's wonderful vocal line for baritone. If you're a fan of Mahler or want to observe German song at the peak of post-Wagnerian Romanticism, this recording is a must own!
