GUSTAV MAHLER (1860-1911): Das Lied von der Erde (original version).
Catalogue Number: 03K054
Description: Although the Schoenberg/ Riehn chamber version of this has received several recordings lately, there is currently no other version available of this voice and piano version. Not revealed to the public until 1953, it exists complete and seems to have been finished before the orchestral score. Arguments for Mahler considering it as a full-fledged concert piece and discussions of its differences from the orchestral version are provided in the notes. But there are no texts since - hey! it's a major piece of repertoire and you should know them by heart by now. Hermine Haselböck (alto), Bernhard Berchtold (tenor), Markus Vorzellner (piano).
