Goldie Marie | 19 comments I prefer Mahler over Beethoven. Many consider
this a crime, but stylistically I prefer it.

I know I am always plugging the brightcecilia site but somebody started a thread recently asking for Mahler recommendations. It might be useful (she said, defensively!). Here is the link:-

Last night was the BBC Prom of Das Lied von der Erde.

Karen Cargill, mezzo soprano
Johan Botha, tenor
Donald Runnicles, Conductor
BBC Scottish Symhony Orchestra

It was just brilliant.

And if you missed it, wherever you are in the world, you can see it on the internet here.

Discussion of it here.

Das klagende Lied is a cantata by Gustav Mahler, composed between 1878 and 1880 and greatly revised over the next two decades. In its original form, Das klagende Lied is one of the earliest of his works to have survived.
