About the album

In Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth), Mahler married together for the first time the lyricism of the song-cycle and the formal ambition of the symphony. With texts based on Chinese poems reflecting on themes of life and death, it contains some of the composer's most bittersweet music – joyful exuberance one moment, anguished heartbreak the next. Ever aware of his own mortality, Mahler was drawn to the poems' highly concentrated reflections on natural beauty, the transience of human existence and the inevitable acceptance of death, describing Das Lied von der Erde as 'probably the most personal composition I have created thus far'.
