Just a few months before his final illness and death, Leonard Bernstein conducted three masterworks by Gustav Mahler in a concert at Vienna's Musikvereinssaal with the Vienna Philharmonic. The program consisted of the Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, the Ruckertlieder and the Kindertotenlieder. The soloist was the American baritone Thomas Hampson. The trade publication Musik & Theater wrote: "I know of no other baritone today who can profess a similar mastery of these three Mahler song cycles on a vocal, emotional and textually sensitive level ... [It is] a singular vocal accomplishment and a worthy conclusion of Bernstein's extensive Mahler discography."
