Gustav Mahler: Rückert Lieder, By Yeree Suh And The Soloists of The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra
Five poetic song cycles
Rückert Lieder is a song cycle for voice and orchestra or piano. It uses the poems of Friedrich Rückert, who liked to use poets’ verses as inspiration for his work. The son of a modest family, Gustav Mahler’s oeuvre is slender in comparison to many of the greats with whom he shares superiority. That said, what Mahler lacks in number, he more than makes up for in quality. Piece together the poetry of Mahler’s Rückert Lieder.
