Emotional power and soaring melodies define these masterworks by Schumann and Mahler. Schumann’s “Rhenish” Symphony is a joyful and richly romantic snapshot of the Rhineland. Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth), a song cycle for tenor and low voice, features some of his most expressive vocal writing and brilliantly detailed orchestration in a poignant meditation on the transitory nature of life.
