Maher and the South Netherlands Philharmonic go way back: they are the success ingredients of an insinuating concert evening. Together with Hans Graf and master soloists Bernarda Fink and Gregory Kunde, the orchestra sets its teeth in Das Lied von der Erde. This ‘vocal’ symphony, based upon ancient Chinese poetry, was written by a Mahler, who was thoroughly tormented shortly after the untimely death of his young daughter Anna Maria. The depressing ‘Farewell’ transpires almost without sound into an everlasting silence. Music that leaves no heart untouched. As a prelude to this masterpiece, the subtle streams of Britten’s Sea Interludes, from his Peter Grimes, resound.
The concert conducted by Hans Graf is made possible by the partner programme of the Friends Foundation of the South Netherlands Philharmonic.
