43 editions published between 1975 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der deutsche Bariton Christian Gerhaher ist zweifellos einer der besten Liedsänger der Welt. Auf seiner neuen CD widmet er sich gemeinsam mit Kent Nagano und dem Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal sowie Klaus Florian Vogt, Tenor, erstmals Mahlers berühmtem Werk "Das Lied von der Erde", seiner Vertonung von sieben Gedichten für Tenor, Alt und Orchester, laut Mahlers eigenem Bekunden "das Persönlichste, was ich je geschrieben habe". Das Werk komponierte Mahler 1907, einem Jahr, in dem sein Leben durch mehrere schwere Schicksalsschläge (dem Tod seiner Tochter, dem Rücktritt als Direktor der Wiener Hofoper und eigener Krankheit) gezeichnet war. Christian Gerhaher, Klaus Florian Vogt und dem Orchester unter Nagano gelingt es, die Tiefen und die Farbigkeit von Mahlers Werk in allen Details auszuloten. Nr. 1 Das Trinklied vom Jammer der Erde: Allegro pesante Nr. 2 Der Einsame im Herbst: Etwas schleichend. Ermüdet Nr. 3 Von der Jugend: Behaglich heiter Nr. 4 Von der Schönheit: Comodo. Dolcissimo Nr. 5 Der Trunkene im Frühling: Allegro Nr. 6 Der Abschied: Schwer
