MET Orchestra Plays Schumann and Mahler at Carnegie Hall

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage - Carnegie Hall

57th Street and Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10019

Emotional power and soaring melodies define these masterworks by Schumann and Mahler. Schumann’s “Rhenish” Symphony is a joyful and richly romantic snapshot of the Rhineland. Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth), a song cycle for tenor and low voice, features some of his most expressive vocal writing and brilliantly detailed orchestration in a poignant meditation on the transitory nature of life.—Carnegie Hall
