SONGS OF LIFE AND DEATH

Mahler
Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen
Rückert-Lieder
Der Schildwache Nachtlied from Des Knaben Wunderhorn
Revelge
from Des Knaben Wunderhorn
Der Abschied from Das Lied von der Erde

 

This programme of Mahler songs is an utterly appropriate offering for Remembrance Day, built around the great final movement of his song symphony, Das Lied von der Erde, with its sorrowful acknowledgement of death juxtaposed alongside a realisation of the beauty of life and the world around us. Written as Mahler faced his own life ebbing away, its bleakness is inescapable but, in the hands of two of Britain’s most acclaimed singers, it will be given a meaningful and exquisite beauty, in the distinguished surrounds of Middle Temple Hall.

Tickets include post concert drinks.
