Tenor Soloist in DAS LIED VON DER ERDE

Detroit Symphony Orchestra

“Mahler’s song-cycle Symphony, The Song of the Earth needed greater clarity from the recessed orchestra, for although Russell Thomas, singing heroically in the opening setting and with distinction, wasn’t closely balanced he still dominated... Thomas went on to give ‘Of Youth’ with a certain regret and to relish further drunken adventure, in Spring.”
–Colin Anderson, Classical Source

“Russell Thomas was everything you could wish for in a tenor. He's handsome, charming, and possesses a terrific sound. I especially liked how both soloists were readily audible above the very large orchestra.”
