Jonas Kaufmann sings Mahler
This is what I tried to fly to Cleveland to hear last winter. Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde. One of my favorite things.
First movement. "Das Trinklied vom Jammer der Erde"
Third movement. "Von der Jugend"
Fifth movement. "Der Trunkene im Fruhling" Notes have been added. This is the performance I missed.
He is so perfect. Of course, the best movements are for mezzo.
