Das Lied at 100: Mahler by Schoenberg
BAC and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s co-present a 100th anniversary performance of Mahler’s monumental song-symphony Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth) in Schoenberg’s masterful chamber music arrangement. Mahler’s deeply profound farewell to life, premiered in 1911, ranges from exuberant, drunken joy to noble acceptance of life’s passing.
