Thomas Hampson is widely regarded as one of the premier interpreters of German art song today. In 2014, the American baritone celebrates Richard Strauss’ 150th anniversary with several concerts in Europe and North America and a new production of the opera Arabella at the Salzburg Easter Festival. With this release, he adds to his already considerable discography with an expertly-crafted collection of Lieder by Strauss.
