In an exclusive
Australian appearance, celebrated tenor Stuart Skelton joins Christianne
Stotijn, Richard Tognetti and the ACO for a performance of Mahler’s
magnificent symphony for two vocalists and orchestra,Das Lied von der Erde (Song of the Earth), in an extraordinary arrangement for chamber ensemble by Schoenberg.
Virtuosic, dramatic and intensely expressive, this moving
song-symphony is the perfect vehicle for Skelton and Stotijn’s rich,
powerful voices, while Schoenberg’s sublime arrangement reveals an
intimacy to Mahler’s commanding yet extremely personal work.
This is an unmissable
performance that sees two of the world’s great operatic voices perform
one of the 20th century’s most enlightening vocal works.
