After winning the BBC Musica Award as the Best Orchestral Music album in 2018, Adam Fischer continues his Mahler's survey with the great cycle Das Lied von der Erde. He is supported by two great singers as Anna Larsson and stuart Skelton. The conductor writes: ‘From the onset, the music in Das Lied von der Erde is permeated by a special mood. Even the texts, based on Far Eastern poetry, are more mood than content. Mahler repeatedly abandons the words’ meaning, but the mood remains. The music implies so much more than the words! For instance, the third poem evokes the reflection of a mirror image in water, but I don’t see those images anywhere in the music. Mahler is not concerned with helping us understand every syllable. If the voice, in its anguish, is drowned out by the orchestra, that is what the music is trying to achieve…”
