Notes & Reviews:

"...[Hampson] gives us the original voice-and-piano versions of two great Mahler song cycles...The performances are exemplary - compelling, inward-drawing and moving. In particular, the baritone's account of the Ruckert Lieder stands comparison to Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's 1978 EMI recording with Daniel Barenboim at the piano. Tempo choices can be daringly broad...Hampson's new Mahler disc has provided one of my first [Want List] candidates for 1998." -Mandel, Fanfare
