Synopsis

Amazon.com
Otto Klemperer's 1967 reading of Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde has in Fritz Wunderlich the greatest tenor who has ever recorded the music, and in Christa Ludwig a mezzo scarcely less impressive. The sonics on this recording are absolutely glorious, and the conductor's measured direction imparts a striking sense of grandeur to the account. --Ted Libbey

CD Reviews

Vocal Perfection
the_admiral | Boston, MA USA | 01/04/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a truly outstanding record that should be in any Mahler-lover's collection. Even if you already own Bruno Walter's recording, I recommend purchasing this one as well, since it features Wunderlich ascendant, at the apex of his career shortly before his unfortunate death. One of the all-time great vocal recordings."
FRITZ AND MAHLER IN HEAVEN!!
Donald A. Newlove | Greenwich Village NY | 02/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Out of some ten or fifteen versions I own of Das Lied, Fritz Wunderlich is may favorite tenor and brings Mahler's drunken ape in the moonlight to life with great heart and the least hurtful and harsh scrape on the opening song. Most tenors make this opening Drinker's song punishing to the listener. But Fritz has lift, joy and starlight. Christa Ludwig's farewell has its own glory. If you can even sing the Abend you can't miss at creating an angelic and heartbreaking lament. It's music you can't kill whoever sings it--the orchestra will carry you, for God's sake."
