Mahler’s Das Lied now on iTunes
Posted on June 18, 2011
Manchester Camerata’s acclaimed live recording of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde is now available as a digital download exclusively on iTunes prior to the CD release in July.
|Das Lied von der Erde was Manchester Camerata’s contribution to the Manchester Mahler Series – a celebration of 150 years since the birth of the great composer.
The series saw all the Symphonies played in order, plus Das Lied von der Erde, and was a partnership between The Bridgewater Hall, The Halle, the BBC Philharmonic and of course Manchester Camerata.
The live performance at The Bridgewater Hall at the end of January 2010 was recorded and is now available to purchase as a digital download from exclusively from iTunes until the physical release of the CD in July.
Engineers were on hand at the concert in January to record the performance conducted by Douglas Boyd, with soloists Jane Irwin and Peter Wedd.
