"DAS LIED VON DER ERDE"

Wed 19.9.2018 at 19:00 Kotka Concert Hall

Gustav Mahler’s great masterpiece Das Lied von der Erde is a superb symphonic song cycle that poignantly addresses some of life’s great issues. The Kymi Sinfonietta will perform it in the widely-acclaimed arrangement for chamber orchestra by Glen Cortese, with Swedish alto Anna Larsson – one of the world’s most celebrated Mahler singers – and the brilliant Estonian tenor Mati Turi as the radiant soloists. The cycle ends with the moving Der Abschied (The Farewell) – as does the Haydn symphony. Tõnu Kõrvits, a rising star on the Estonian musical firmament, is a visionary who draws inspiration from nature. In Hymns to the Nordic Lights, he soundpaints moods inspired by the flickering shimmering on the northern sky.
