Mahler Das Lied von der Erde (2013)

Mahler

Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra

Marc Albrecht

n the summer of 1908, Gustav Mahler writes his friend, conductor Bruno Walter, from Toblach: “First, I went about making myself at home here. This time, however, I not only have to adjust my surroundings, but the way I live, as well.“ What had happened? In the spring of 1907, the Viennese press had launched a new hate and slander campaign against Mahler as director of the court opera, and this time, successfully: Mahler had concluded he had no choice but to relinquish his position. Holidays in Maiernigg by Lake Wörth (German: Wörthersee) had been supposed to bring rest and tranquillity following this turbulent period, but only a few days after their arrival, Mahler’s oldest daughter, Maria (‘Putzi’), developed symptoms of scarlet fever, and died on 12 July. And as though this had not been enough, shortly thereafter, Mahler was diagnosed with a heart ailment, which, although at the time not life-threatening, was nevertheless interpreted by the composer as his death sentence.

Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra

With 130 musicians the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra is the largest orchestral organization in the Netherlands. Founded in 1985 as a merger of the Amsterdam Philharmonic, the Utrecht Symphony and the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra continues the tradition of its predecessors in offering an attractive combination of accessible concert programs, in which works from the core repertoire are combined with contemporary music. The orchestra has a tradition in performing the music of Dutch composers and has commissioned and premiered works by Andriessen, Loevendie, Jeths, Franssens, van Onna, Hamburg, Kox, Koolmees and Ketting.
