Das Lied von der Erde

Gustav Mahler’s late works constitute a moving farewell to life, more loving and content than tragic and bitter.

Nowhere is that better heard than in Das Lied von der Erde, Mahler’s culminating synthesis of song and symphony. It is the first work Mahler wrote knowing he was soon to die - an examination of the questions and paradoxes of life in the form of six songs possessed of extraordinary clarity and depth.


Sadness and exultation, celebration and resignation mingle in Mahler’s unfathomably beautiful songs, sung here by Florian Vogt and Claudia Mahnke under the baton of the Frankfurt Opera’s Sebastian Weigle.
