SONG OF LAMENTATION
for Soloists, Choir and Orchestra (1878-1880 / rev. 1899)
Text: Gustav Mahler after Ludwig Bechsteins fairy tale „Das Klagende Lied“
and „Der singende Knochen“ (The Singing Bone) by the Brothers Grimm
[1]       Waldmärchen / Forest Legend (First Version 1880)
[2]       Der Spielmann / The Minstrel (Revised Version, 1899)
[3]       Hochzeitsstück / Wedding Piece (Revised Version, 1899)                                                               

The cantata Das klagende Lied even today constitutes a veritable rarity in concert programmes – in an age that without contradiction recognizes Mahler as one of the most eminent milestones in the music history, seeing him permanently embedded in the repertoire.
The salient significance of this large-scale, vocal symphonic work is to be seen in the fact that de facto it forms the beginning of Mahler’s familiar oeuvre, explaining and illustrating to the scholar and the exclusively listening music lover alike so many things that make up Mahler.
In the context of Das klagende Lied especially, it might justifiably be asserted that Mahler contains everything that was prior to him, but he also anticipates everything that came after him.

Daniel Behle is one of the most versatile German tenors, with successes in concerts, recitals and the opera alike: “The basic idea for this programme was originally a homage to the golden 1950s and 1960s and my favourite singer of that time, Fritz Wunderlich. Earlier, not everything used to be bad, and for this reason I find it legitimate to ‘re-animate’ the greatest ‘pearls’ once more and present them to a younger audience.”

»The First Lady of art song« Jürgen Kesting (STERN)
On the 28th of May Mitsuko Shirai celebrated her 70th birthday.
She looks back on a life rich with musical performances: lieder, concerts, and also operas. The Lied duo Mitsuko Shirai • Hartmut Höll have created their own vast library of songs with numerous CD recordings and set new standards with concerts and CDs.
I prize all the recordings of Mistuko Shirai and Hartmut Höll, an historically great partnership in song, and I cherish the memory of the many times I heard them live.
Richard Dyer, Boston Globe

Together with his friend Holst, at the beginning of the 20th century Ralph Vaughan Williams deliberately took the course of liberating himself from ‘German influence’, as they called it, working for original British music. He found models and inspiration in original English folk music.
Most of the works recorded here rank among the less known pieces by the composer, but all of them very clearly reflect the personal hue, the absolutely ‘personal style’ of Ralph Vaughan Williams.
