Andrè Schuen & Daniel Heide: Lieder by Franz Schubert and Gustav Mahler
GET YOUR TICKET for 9.90 EUR

Performing in the Gewehrsaal at Schloss Ettersburg, near Weimar, baritone and DG artist Andrè Schuen and his long-term recital partner, pianist Daniel Heide, begin their programme with Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (Songs of a Wayfarer). This four-song cycle, with texts by the composer, follows a young man as he sets out on a journey. Initially lost in grief at the thought of his beloved marrying someone else, he finally finds peace as he sleeps beneath a linden tree. Next we hear three of Schubert’s best-loved and most beautiful songs. All three set poems by Friedrich Rückert, who also inspired Mahler: his Rückert Lieder were originally published as independent pieces, and can therefore be sung in the performers’ chosen order. Schuen and Heide end with Mahler’s “Urlicht” (Primal Light), the moving final song from Des Knaben Wunderhorn (The Boy’s Magic Horn), which later became the fourth movement of his Second Symphony.
