Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde

Dates/times in London time zone

‘I believe this is the most personal thing I have done.’ So wrote Mahler, devastated by the sudden death of his daughter Anna Maria and the swift diagnosis of his own incurable heart disease. Das Lied hovers elegiacally between song and symphony, placing our own transience and mortality against the constant renewal and regeneration of the earth. Alongside, the most popular symphony from another Viennese composer: Schubert’s Unfinished.
