Recording : Hindemith - Mathis der Maler
... the most vivid characterization here is Scott MacAllister's Albrecht von Brandenburg, Cardinal Elector of Mainz — a shrewd politician, flawed by indecisiveness but redeemed by a humanistic passion for art. MacAllister's tenor, perfect for a role such as Loge in Das Rheingold, conveys devious subtlety coated with candor and charm: one can hear him thinking his way through tight situations, improvising a smooth, expressive answer.
