This CD has received a 10/10 review on ClassicsToday.com
Deutsche Grammophon salutes Thomas Quasthoff with the first-ever compilation of his greatest DG hits.

One of the greatest bass-baritones in the world today, Thomas Quasthoff has made an extraordinary series of award-winning recordings for Deutsche Grammophon over the last six years. He won a third Grammy as recently as early 2006.

In The Voice a wide-ranging selection of Quasthoff's work is presented from all the CDs he has released so far, both as a solo lieder recitalist and with orchestral accompaniment. In the first disc he sings with orchestra, starting with some favourite Schubert and continuing with a range of German Romantic arias, from Weber and Lortzing to Wagner and Richard Strauss. These are followed by two great comic Mahler songs from the Grammy-winning Knaben Wunderhorn CD with Claudio Abbado. The CD is rounded off by the complete Bach cantata Ich habe genug, a favourite of Quasthoff's, first released in 2004 (and also a Grammy-winner!).

The singer himself was more than happy to collaborate with the selection of titles, suggesting arias from his wonderful album Die Stimme - Evening Star (with Christian Thielemann conducting), and approving the release of a bonus track: an additional orchestral song by Schubert, Greisengesang, released here for the first time ever.

The second CD is devoted to the lied with piano, erupting with a passionate performance of Schubert's Auf der Bruck. More Schubert favourites follow, including two from last year's release, Die schone Mullerin. It's a CD of highlights but also takes in some very attractive less-familiar Brahms lieder, three Liszt songs and Carl Loewe's frighteningly spooky ballad Herr Oluf, guaranteed to bring the house down in concert and on CD.

The full-colour 24-page CD booklet accompanying the set has an exclusive new in-depth interview with Thomas Quasthoff by journalist Jorg Konigsdorf, as well as a selection of rare photos from DG recording sessions, from Quasthoff masterclasses in Berlin and, from the Vienna State Opera production of Parsifal in 2005, a stunning portrait of the singer in the role of Amfortas.
