Das Lied von der Erde by Gustav Mahler( )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in German and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So einzigartig wie die formale Gestaltung des Werks, so extrem sind die Anforderungen an seine Interpreten: Es bedarf zweier gestandener Liedsänger, die im Zusammenwirken mit dem riesigen Orchesterapparat ebenso als Solisten hervortreten, wie sie sich als konzertierende Stimmen in das symphonische Gefüge mit einzuordnen vermögen. Es bedarf eines ausgezeichneten, bestens aufeinander abgestimmten Klangkörpers, und natürlich einer Dirigentenpersönlichkeit, die für Zusammenhalt sorgt und der Großform Geist und Beseeltheit verleiht. Alle diese Parameter fügten sich bei Konzerten zusammen, die am 25. und 26. Januar 2018 im Herkulessaal der Münchener Residenz aufgezeichnet wurden und nun bereits als CD bei BR Klassik veröffentlicht werden
