Gustav Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde
“The dear earth everywhere blossoms in spring and grows green again. Everywhere and eternally the distance shines bright and blue! Eternally.” It is with the utmost tenderness that “The Song of the Earth”, Mahler’s vision of the individual at last vanishing to become one with eternal nature, comes to a close. But the future of Earth is by no means as certain now as it was for that composer of symphonies from Bohemia or the Chinese poets whose works he set. Time once again to perform Mahler’s vocal symphony for two singers. Every nuance of the text is audible when Herbert Lippert strikes up “The Drinking Song of the Sorrow of the Earth”. And when Stephanie Houtzeel sings “The Farewell”, Mahler visions are reflected in the glow of her mezzo.
