Mahler orchestral songs: June 2011

Mahler orchestral songs: June 2011

In this final Mahler Anniversary Season pre-concert talk, Surrey University Lecturer Jeremy Barham explores the early 20th century collection of German folk poetry 'Des Knaben Wunderhorn' (The youth's magic horn), placing it in historical and literary context of the Romantic movement. The collection is perhaps best known through the songs by Mahler, and this talk looks at the composer's masterful depiction of the texts through his music.
