The idea is to present Thomas Hampson’s exploration of how Mahler’s life, thought and personality are reflected through the composer’s songs. The good and bad, the hopes and disappointments, the flaws and triumphs, in short, all the complexities of the human experience found their way into these lieder, but they were also a part of Mahler’s identity, a reflection of who he was as an individual. It was Mahler’s genius that allowed him to elevate these to a universal artistic message, but it is also a human being who speaks to us here, who gives vent to his frustrations, who pokes fun at his own foibles, who tells us of his experiences of life.
