RSNO Mahler's Song of the Earth

7:30pm, Friday 06 March 2020

Thomas Søndergård     Conductor
Jane Irwin                     Soprano
Simon O'Neill                Tenor

R Strauss                       Also sprach Zarathustra
Mahler                           Das Lied von der Erde

‘I mean to portray in music the whole story of the human race…’ Richard Strauss did everything on a spectacular scale, and if you only know Also sprach Zarathustra from 2001: A Space Odyssey, you haven’t heard the half of it! But there’s more: Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth) is a heartbreakingly poignant hymn to life in all its sorrow and sweetness. Some say it’s the greatest symphony Mahler never wrote, and with the divine voices of Jane Irwin and Simon O’Neill, Thomas Søndergård can dive straight to its heart.
