Renowned Helden tenor Cameron Schutza and mezzo-soprano Ann McMahon Quintero present a stirring performance of Gustav Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde. The piano reduction of the work is accessible on any stage. Das Lied von der Erde is Mahler’s farewell masterpiece – it was composed following the death of his daughter, his resignation as director of the Vienna Court Opera, and upon the diagnosis of his uncurable heart condition. It profoundly explores themes of life and loss, two concepts that many are navigating in these turbulent times. Schutza’s “clarity of tone, ringing high notes and clear German diction,” (Opera Magazine) and Quintero’s “warm, honeyed tones” (Baltimore Sun) shine brilliantly as they navigate Mahler’s intentions for his farewell masterpiece.
