Werther by Jules Massenet( )

29 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Hampson offers a rare opportunity to hear the baritone version of this opera's title part, as arranged by Massenet for the legendary Mattia Battistini. Werther's tragedy, when performed by a baritone rather than a tenor, takes on an even darker hue. Hampson's moving portrayal brings out all the idealism, melancholy, and eventual despair of the character over the loss of his beloved Charlotte, sung by Susan Graham. Graham gives an equally heart-rending performance as the young woman torn between her love for the romantic Werther and her promise to marry Albert (Christopher Robertson). Rebecca Evans is Charlotte's innocent younger sister, Sophie, and Donald Runnicles conducts

En este magnífico CD, los amantes de la música tienen la oportunidad de deleitarse con los trabajos no operisticos de Puccini. Descrito a menudo como el "arma secreta" de la London Symphony Orchestra, el director Antonio Pappano es un sublime intérprete de Puccini. Los solistas de este álbum no podían ser más espléndidos : el tenor Roberto Alagna y el barítono Thomas Hampson. El director y las super estrellas del canto, son un trío dinámico que han relizado una grabación incomparable

Thaïs by Jules Massenet( )

28 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take one ascetic monk named Athanaël and one ravishingly beautiful courtesan named Thaïs, add Massenet's sensual, melodious music, with equal dashes of eroticism and religious fervor--and you have a powerful opera that is at once a celebration of the sacred and the profane, of flesh and soul. This rarity had not been heard at the Met for almost 40 years when it was brought back as a vehicle for the great soprano Beverly Sills and the magnetic singing actor Sherrill Milnes. Together, they masterfully bring to life the searing conflict at the heart of the drama
Das Lied von der Erde by Gustav Mahler( )

28 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der deutsche Bariton Christian Gerhaher ist zweifellos einer der besten Liedsänger der Welt. Auf seiner neuen CD widmet er sich gemeinsam mit Kent Nagano und dem Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal sowie Klaus Florian Vogt, Tenor, erstmals Mahlers berühmtem Werk "Das Lied von der Erde", seiner Vertonung von sieben Gedichten für Tenor, Alt und Orchester, laut Mahlers eigenem Bekunden "das Persönlichste, was ich je geschrieben habe". Das Werk komponierte Mahler 1907, einem Jahr, in dem sein Leben durch mehrere schwere Schicksalsschläge (dem Tod seiner Tochter, dem Rücktritt als Direktor der Wiener Hofoper und eigener Krankheit) gezeichnet war. Christian Gerhaher, Klaus Florian Vogt und dem Orchester unter Nagano gelingt es, die Tiefen und die Farbigkeit von Mahlers Werk in allen Details auszuloten. Nr. 1 Das Trinklied vom Jammer der Erde: Allegro pesante Nr. 2 Der Einsame im Herbst: Etwas schleichend. Ermüdet Nr. 3 Von der Jugend: Behaglich heiter Nr. 4 Von der Schönheit: Comodo. Dolcissimo Nr. 5 Der Trunkene im Frühling: Allegro Nr. 6 Der Abschied: Schwer

31 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two sisters whose fiancés have gone off to war (or so they pretend), a clever maid, a cynical old philosopher, and those same two fiancés in disguise--six characters is all it takes for Mozart and his librettist, Lorenzo Da Ponte, to explore both the fun and the heartbreak that love can lead to in this equally lighthearted and deeply human comedy. James Levine masterfully leads a stellar cast that includes Carol Vaness and Tatiana Troyanos as the sisters, Jerry Hadley and Thomas Hampson as their fiancés, Betsy Norden as Despina, and Richard Van Allen as Don Alfonso

Public acclaim and private tragedy are inextricably linked in the story of Simon Boccanegra, sung in this broadcast by the great Thomas Hampson. On the day he is acclaimed Doge of Genoa, his beloved Maria dies, and their infant daughter disappears. Years later, father and daughter (Angela Gheorghiu) are reunited, but the man she loves (Marcello Giordani) is Boccanegra's sworn enemy. Throughout this heartbreaking tale of love, fate, and politics, Verdi's magnificent score conveys the deep love and compassion he has for his main characters
