Cantata Profana Mainstage 1: Das Lied von der Erde

  • YIVO Institute for Jewish Research 15 West 16th Street New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

Cantata Profana joins forces with the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research to present Gustav Mahler’s epic song symphony, Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth). I will be conducting Arnold Schoenberg and Rainer Riehn’s chamber orchestra arrangement features fourteen all-star players with two of CP’s favorite singers, Sara Couden (The Lover in Winter) and Thomas Cooley (Henze Kammermusik 1958). The program places this work in the context of its German and Jewish milieu pairing it with short works by Schoenberg, Johann Strauss II, Giacomo Meyerbeer, and Louis Lewandowski, as well as a new work by composer Alex Weiser.
