I am listening to BBC Proms orchestra The Hallé under Mark Elder in Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde with soloists Alice Coote and Gregory Kunde.  I may possibly love this piece more than any opera.  I remember sitting in my living room in Germany and playing it on the piano, even though I'm a terrible pianist.  There's been some work on the orchestration.   This performance is simply wonderful.  Thank you.  There is so much depth of understanding.

  Listen here.
