Rate this:
No composer before Mahler had ever devoted himself exclusively to two genres so apparently incompatible as the intimate lied and the grandiose symphony. Thus it is fascinating in "Das Lied von der Erde" to see him combining, at this late stage of his career, these two seemingly opposed genres in a 'symphony of lieder' for two solo voices and orchestra. Musicologist Habakuk Traber presents this exceptional work of which Mahler himself wrote that "I think it is probably the most personal composition I have created thus far." Semyon Bychkov conducts the Cologne Symphony Orchestra with mezzo-soprano Waltraud Maier and tenor Torsten Kerl.
