The New York Philharmonic also performs Gustav Mahler's Symphony no. 2, "The Resurrection." <em>The New York Times </em>wrote that Adams' "music is driven by Whitman’s words, set with a deft blend of aching lyricism and conversational naturalness. Mr. Hampson brought myriad colorings to his singing." Alan Gilbert conducts.</p><p></p><p></p> Wed, 11 Sep 2013 04:19:31 +0000 Barney Sherman 28884 at http://iowapublicradio.org Hampson sings Whitman, NY plays Mahler
