Mahler, Kindertotenlieder



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 "RĂ¼ckertlieder" 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
discography."
