Mahler, Rückertlieder

Just a few months before his final illness and death, Leonard Bernstein
conducted three masterworks by Gustav Mahler in a concert at Vienna's
Musikvereinssaal with the Vienna Philharmonic. The program consisted of
the "Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen", the "Rückertlieder" and the
"Kindertotenlieder". The soloist was the American baritone Thomas Hampson.
The trade publication "Musik & Theater" wrote: "I know of no other baritone
today who can profess a similar mastery of these three Mahler song cycles
on a vocal, emotional and textually sensitive level. [...] a singular vocal
accomplishment and a worthy conclusion of Bernstein's extensive Mahler
