Klaus Tennstedt cemented the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s celebrated relationship with the music of Gustav Mahler, concurrently creating a distinguished conductor-orchestra partnership. With Thomas Hampson by his side – who in his performance found an ‘enviable range of colour between and within songs’ – and his ‘beautifully focused’ London Philharmonic Orchestra on impressive form, Tennstedt here conjures memorable and vivid performances of works by his most cherished composer captured live in concerts from 1985 and 1991.
