Mahler referred to his “Song of the Earth” as “a symphony in songs.” Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra illuminate the fleeting nature of human life as depicted in this extraordinary song cycle. “Vulnerable and intense” (New York Times), baritone Christian Gerhaher and tenor Stuart Skelton sing the work’s folk texts adapted from Tang Dynasty poetry.
