Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Das Lied von der Erde

at The Queen's Hall

Haydn: Symphony No 60 ‘Il Distratto’
Mahler (arr. Cortese): Das Lied von der Erde

Robin Ticciati: Conductor; Karen Cargill: Mezzo Soprano; Toby Spence: Tenor

“The most personal utterance among Mahler’s creations and perhaps in all music…” The view of Mahler’s friend, the conductor Bruno Walter, who gave the premiere in 1911 and lived to conduct Das Lied at the very first Edinburgh Festival in 1947. Inspired by Chinese poetry, the music veers between earthly passions and eternal longings, ultimately dissolving into sublime nothingness. This acclaimed new chamber orchestra version was premiered at the BBC Proms. Ticciati has preceded it, playfully enough, with perhaps Haydn’s most theatrical and mad – literally mad – symphony.
