Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano
Opening concert for the 2023/2024 Season of the Symphony Orchestra of Milan
|Das Lied von der Erde
|Ludwig van Beethoven
|Sinfonia No. 5 in C minor Op. 67
Life, separation, salvation. In Das lied von der Erde, written after a period characterized by pain (such as the premature death of his beloved daughter Maria Anna), Mahler addresses the themes dearest to him. This work also represents a revolution in his writing: a great symphonic work in balance between Symphony and voice. The program ends with a cornerstone of the repertoire, the Symphony No. 5 by Beethoven, an author very dear to the Bohemian musician.
