Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde

MIDI sequence ©1998-2000 by Joe Monzo

(you're listening to an mp3 of my MIDI sequence of the end of the piece.)

Mahler, Das Lied von der Erde (1998-2000)

1st movement: Das Trinklied vom Jammer der Erde ['the drinking-song of Earthly sorrow']

3rd movement: Von der Jugend ['on youth']

6th movement: Der Abschied ['the farewell'] (final section)

Die liebe Erde allüberall
Blüht auf im Lenz und grünt
Aufs neu! Allüberall und ewig
Blauen licht die Fernen!
Ewig... ewig...
The dear earth everywhere
blossoms in spring and grows green
anew! Everywhere and forever,
a blue light shines in the distance!
Forever... forever...

(see A Century of New Music in Vienna for further background info)

Turn out the lights, lie back, and enter Mahler's world
