Colin Matthews’ Trinklied vom Jammer der Erde

Posted on 10 May 2012

Sir Mark ElderSir Mark Elder and the Hallé Orchestra give the world première of Colin Matthews’ new version of Mahler’s Das Trinklied vom Jammer der Erde tonight.

The work is part of a complete performance of Das Lied von der Erde at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.

Matthews’ version has a slightly lighter orchestra than Mahler’s original, giving the tenor soloist (tonight Lars Cleveman) a greater prominence.
