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.
