At the end of Songs of a Wayfarer, the disenchanted wanderer finds solace by embracing everything: “All, all! Love and sorrow, and world and dream.” Gustav Mahler’s sublime art songs soar in this recital from German baritone Christian Gerhaher, known for his “vulnerable and intense” performances with pianist Gerold Huber (New York Times). This lyrical evening traverses stirring folkloric poetry settings from Des Knaben Wunderhorn (“The Boy’s Magic Horn”) and the eternally poignant Kindertotenlieder.
