Disgusting error? How dare I? The San Francisco Symphony making a disgusting error? Never!

I want to point out, in case anybody's wondering what's wrong with their CD player, during the very beginnning of the second movement of this song cycle, a distant beeping sound is heard. I was at the performance when this recording was made. That's the sound of a stupid audience member who forgot to turn off their digital watch.

Just a heads up, in case. But as of the orchestra's performance, go for it!

One risks a hail of negative responses when demurring from the general rapture over MTT's Mahler, but here goes. Tilson Thomas is skillful and brisk in much of this music, failing to plumb Mahler's poetic melancholy and world-weariness. 'Das Lied' repays the most profound musical instincts. Here, the only performer who rises fully to the occasion is Thomas Hampson. His earlier account with Simon Rattle on EMI was strangely out of sorts, but now, in magnificent voice, Hampson turns in a world-class performance. Detractors may feel that he makes the vocal part too virtuosic, or that he "always sounds like Thomas Hampson," but mannerisms are kept to a minimum. His mature and moving mastery makes the whole performance rise to a higher level. In particular there's a tenderness in the final "Abschied" that I had previously associated only with female singers on the order of Christa Ludwig and Kathleen Ferrier.

Stuart Skelton, a promising Australian dramatic tenor with a slightly beefy sound, does well. The engineers were smart to mike him close enough that he doesn't have to shout over the orchestra, and although Skelton doesn't approach Fritz Wunderlich or Ben Heppner for beauty of voice or deep interpretation, he's as satisfying as far more famous tenors on rival versions. The engineering throughout is exemplary -- I listened to the two-channel stereo version -- and no doubt will prove one of the strongest draws in the SACD surround format.

There's no limit to how expressive the instrumental solos should be in this music. But the San Francisco Sym. doesn't have many first-rate woodwind and brass players, so we wind up nowhere near Klemperer's New Philharmonia Orch. on his classic EMI recording, much less the Vienna or Berlin Phil.

Although I generally regard brevity as a virtue, I love Mahler's music nonetheless, and Das Lied von der Erde is my favorite among his works. And though I've loved each installment of Michael Tilson Thomas's deservedly praised Mahler symphony cycle, I was disappointed when I learned that Thomas Hampson would be performing the songs more commonly sung by a mezzo-soprano in the MTT/SFS DLVDE recording--not that I've anything against Mr. Hampson (loved his performance as Figaro in San Francisco Opera's Barber of Seville a few years back, in fact!), simply that I've always preferred the mezzo. I doubted that Hampson could hold a candle to some of the extraordinary women who have shone in this repertoire, like Christa Ludwig for Klemperer Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde, or the sultry Violeta Urmana whose performance in Boulez's recording helps make that a DLVDE to treasure Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde - Violeta Urmana / Michael Schade / Wiener Philharmoniker / Pierre Boulez. Consequently, when this issue was finally released, I did not rush out to buy it, but waited first to hear it via an on-line music service.

I listened to the complete recording via those lossy streaming files. Immediately afterwards, I listened to it again. Then I rushed out to purchase the recording at the nearest Brick & Mortar store that still carries classical CDs, after which I listened to it again, and again, and again. (I cannot recall the last time I was so thoroughly seduced by a recording.

Mahler! What can one say about this extraordinary artist? "Das Lied von der Erde" is just at the absolute end of emotional and intellectual capacity for the expressing of the inexpressible. The "Abscheid", with its final "Ewig!" never fails to tear me apart. I'm usually rendered almost to tears. (This entire work, along with the final two Adagios of the 9th Symphony are killers for me.)

As for the SFS and Maestro Thomas, along with Mssrs. Hampson and Skelton, the performance was first class. Mr. Hampson, whom I have admired equally with Dietrich Fischer-Diskau as being at the top of the heap was even more convincing than Christa Ludwig for Bernstein, in my estimation, but that's just a personal preference. That is not to take away a scintilla of perfection in Ludwig's performances. Mr. Skelton was wonderful in every respect, particularly since Mahler is so demanding of the high voice in this work.

I agonized as to whether buy Lennie's NYP recording with Ludwig, which many consider as good as it gets (other than *perhaps* Walter and the Vienna in the early 60's) or the SFS/Thomas recording. Frankly, I chose the San Francisco Symphony because I'm unabashedly in love with that orchestra. I grew up in San Francisco with it. The SFS is my first connection with serious music. (I go back as far as Enrique Jorda!)

In any event, I was not disappointed. Tilson-Thomas has brought that orchestra to the highest, world-class level. The players are incredible. And what he does with the great German/Viennese symphonists is to make this ensemble proud. Bravo.

Buy this offering without trepidation!
