"Mahler's greatest symphony"

Leonard Bernstein

Seventeen JMU School of Music faculty and alumna come together to perform an arrangement for chamber ensemble of Gustav Mahler’s stirring song-symphony Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth), which consists of six songs based on a collection of Chinese poems about the joys and sorrows of life. Celebrated conductor and composer Leonard Bernstein called Das Lied von der Erde “Mahler’s greatest symphony.” This arrangement, which enhances the clarity and intimacy of this deeply affecting music, features the solo voices of tenor Jamison Walker and baritone Kevin McMillan under the direction of Foster Beyers.
