Re: Das Lied von der Erde with tenor and baritone

I, too, have a preference for the alto. Aside from the two Ferrier versions (live and studio), if I had to choose only one, it would be the Janet Baker recording with Waldemar Kmentt and Kubelik on the Audite label that Ralph mentions.
I'm also very fond of the Nan Merriman and Ernst Haefliger/Eugen Jochum version, which was issued several years ago on DG Originals. For some reason, it doesn't get much of a mention these days.
