Special chamber concert

Gustav Mahler: “The Song of the Earth” - chamber orchestra version by Arnold Schönberg, completed by Rainer Riehn

A cooperation with the “Liedstadt” festival, which begins its musical journey in Hamburg and gives the song genre new perspectives.

Tenor: Julian Prégardien
Mezzo-soprano: Fleur Barron
Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg

Gustav Mahler's development and work as a composer focused largely on two musical genres: symphony and song. The two very different forms approached each other again and again, but the combination of the monumentality of the symphony and the intimacy of the song reached a hymn-like climax in “Das Lied von der Erde”. A compositional legacy based on texts by Hans Bethge that Mahler left to the world, knowing full well that his own death was already waiting for him around the next corner. For the concerts of the “Association for Private Musical Performances” Arnold Schönberg arranged Mahler's final song for a chamber orchestra, a work that was finally completed by Rainer Riehn. The arrangement for chamber orchestra made Mahler's composition a masterpiece of its own, in which the essence of the original sound is preserved through careful reduction and transforms into a new quality of characteristics and emotional experience.
