Hampson, Thomas

Thomas Hampson: A Portrait

1 Aug 2014

Barcode: 0825646256570

Composer: Giuseppe Verdi, Gioachino Rossini, Jules Massenet, Giacomo Meyerbeer

American singer Thomas Hampson had already embarked on a law degree when he found his true vocation: in 1981 he came to Europe, and was soon causing a stir in Nikolaus Harnoncourt’s legendary Zurich Mozart cycle. Since then, the likeable baritone has belonged to the world’s top rank of opera and Lieder singers, and has also made a name for himself as a Broadway star. Hampson's velvety, virile voice never merely revels in beautiful sound: it expresses genuine feeling at all times.
