About Thomas Hampson

American singer Thomas Hampson has been one of the world's top opera stars since the early 1990s, with more than 200 recordings to his credit. Hampson combines a mellifluous tone that has proven remarkably durable, a powerful top, and charisma. Performing in several famed readings of Mahler works conducted late in life by Leonard Bernstein cemented Hampson's reputation; a 1986 recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 6 in A minor was an early recording triumph. Since then, there is hardly a major world opera house or concert venue in which he has not appeared. The pace of Hampson's recording career did not slow in the late 2010s and early 2020s. In 2023, he released a pair of albums, appearing on a recording of Kurt Weill's cantata Propheten and issuing an album of Liszt orchestral songs.
