BBC Radio 3 broadcasting January’s Das Lied von der Erde concert on Monday 14 June.

From the Performance page of Radio 3:

Manchester Camerata, conducted by Douglas Boyd, bring a coda to the critically-acclaimed cycle of Mahler symphonies performed by Manchester’s orchestras, with the symphonic song-cycle that Mahler himself called a symphony, though it’s not part of the numbered sequence.

Before that, Bushra El-Turk’s Mosaic is a new work inspired by the Mahler.”


Bushra El-Turk: Mosaic (World Premiere)
Mahler (arr. Schoenberg/Riehn): Das Lied Von Der Erde


Jane Irwin (mezzo-soprano)
Peter Wedd (tenor)
