Mahler was a great symphonist and a great songwriter. In his “song-symphony” Das Lied von der Erde (“The Song of the Earth”), these two strands of his genius are intertwined. Here Mahler summons all his orchestral and vocal imagination, taking us to the heart of ancient Chinese poems that praise life’s joys and lament life’s brevity. Michael Tilson Thomas conducts the San Francisco Symphony, with tenor Stuart Skelton and world-renowned baritone Thomas Hampson.

“…Thomas and the orchestra have rarely sounded so assured or dynamic in their command of Mahler’s late style.”     

San Francisco Chronicle


“…dazzling… Hampson ’s utter mastery of music and text made this performance one to cherish.”

San Jose Mercury News





*****
Not perfect, and I still give it five stars. The singers are very good: Hampson is brilliant, Skelton does his best, though he is more powerful in the quieter passages than needed. It is still a five-star performance, because I feel the need to listen to it again and again despite its flaws, and this is the sigh of greatness.
