Mahler began work on Das Lied von der Erde!

I just felt like sharing... Is it really the last "symphony"?

Here's Das Trinklied von Jammer der Erde

Wunderlich.

It's the last complete one, isn't it? Though he didn't call it a symphony because he thought the ninth would finish him off. And in true Mahler fashion, his spooky premonition came true.

What better way to get around the symphony problem than by writing a gigantic symphonic song cycle? woo!

Abschied is amazing, but I have to be in the right mood for that. It's sad.

I love Das Lied von der Erde. The addition of oriental aspects to it refreshes what could have become bloated and banal after the eighth symphony (you can hear this also in the ninth). Like Flo, my favourite is Der Abshied, which is of course incredibly sad (never something to deter me ) but ultimately (and in great contrast to the end of the ninth) a radiant, transcended peroration is achieved (the afterlife?)
