Kansas City Symphony Classical Series: Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony with Mahler

Description: Michael Stern, conductor Michelle DeYoung, mezzo-soprano Joseph Kaiser, tenor SCHUBERT Symphony No. 8, “Unfinished” MAHLER Das Lied von der Erde (Song of the Earth) No one is certain why Schubert completed only two movements of what, by tradition, would have been a four-movement symphony. Nevertheless, the surviving movements of the “Unfinished” Symphony stand proudly together and comprise one of the most eloquent orchestral works of all time. Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth) is Mahler’s setting for tenor, mezzo-soprano and orchestra of 8th-century Chinese poems, translated into German. The Song of the Earth features some of the most stunning and evocative music ever written by its landmark composer, and its great depth offers listeners an incredibly moving and powerful symphonic experience. Tickets for this Kansas City Symphony program start at $25. Submitted by: Beth Buchanan Kansas City Symphony
