Widely regarded as Mahler’s greatest masterpiece, The Song of the Earth is undeniably melancholic but in the most beautiful of ways. The sheer emotion imparted by combining the text with Mahler’s deeply reflective mood is tangible. In the hands of these two outstanding British singers, who, seemingly effortlessly, convey feeling in every phrase they sing, this is sure to be a wonderfully moving performance.


Alice Coote ushering us into the beyond with haunting tenderness: on this form, she is matchless. This was not just a ‘Song of the Earth’ it was out of this world.” The Times
