I hardly know where to begin. This DVD, a recital done by baritone Thomas Hampson and pianist Wolfram Rieger, is so wonderful that it's hard to know what to spotlight. First, since this review is appearing before Amazon has listed the lieder sung by Hampson, I'll do that. This is an all-Mahler concert with most of the lieder coming from the 'Knaben Wunderhorn' songs set for singer and piano by Mahler between 1872 and 1901. He set about 25 of them; this concert includes fifteen or so. They are in three groups: 'Frühlingsmorgen,' 'Ablösung im Sommer,' 'Rheinlegendchen,' 'Lob des hohen Verstandes,' and 'Des Antonius von Padua Fischpredigt,' followed by 'Aus! Aus!,' 'Starke Einbildungskraft,' 'Zu Strassburg auf der Schanz,' and 'Revelge,' and concluding with 'Der Tambourg'sell,' 'Lied des Verfolgten im Turm,' 'Wo die schönen Trompeten blasen,' 'Das irdische Leben,' 'Das himmlische Leben,' and finally, 'Urlicht.' The only non-Wunderhorn song is the first one.
Hampson is an absolutely first-rate actor without being hammy (although there have been some who criticize him in this regard, I am not one of them; I believe that he so truly believes what he is singing that his acting is, rather, 'being'). Further, he is in absolute control of his voice in passages from those that call for the most dramatic outbursts to those that are soft and tender. His understanding and conveying of the texts is uncanny. In 'Revelge,' for instance, one can picture the dead soldiers rising from their graves to help the soldier serenade his betrothed. In 'Lied des Verfolgten im Turm' he convinces us of the horror of the condemned prisoner in the tower.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hampson - Rieger - Mahler : what a combination 27 July 2013
Verified Purchase
Thomas Hampson may be considered as one of the best "Lieder" interpreter : in combination with Wolfram Rieger a devine combination. And his sense for Mahler of course is great !!! For thouse who like the Lieder cycle Das Knaben Wunderhorn a DVD to have!!!
