Thomas Hampson, Baritone
From the Theatre Musical de Paris - Chatelet

Thomas Hampson possesses one of today's most beautiful voices, due to an extraordinary symbiosis of vocal and performing powers. To tell stories, to bring them to life, to move and touch us, this is what matters most to him when he appears on stage, and his performances at the world's major concert and opera stages are hailed by audiences and critics alike. In recital, Thomas Hampson has set new standards, especially with his interpretation of the Gustav Mahler and Hugo Wolf song repertoire.

Almost all of his recordings have received awards, including six Grammy nominations, two Nederlands Edison Prizes, two Prix du Disque, three Gramophone Awards, the Grand Prix de la Nouvelle Academie du Disque, the Prize de Charles Cors Academie du Disque Lyrique, the Echo Deutscher Schallplattenpreis and the Cannes Classical Award. Thomas Hampson was EMI Artist of the Year 1997. His recording of Tannhauser received the Grammy Award 2002 for Best Opera Recording.
