Song of the Earth

Jean-Marie Zeitouni, conductor
Sasha Cooke, mezzo
Anthony Dean Griffey, tenor

BRITTEN Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes, Op. 33a
MAHLER Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth)

The sky, the sea and the earth are explored in this rapturous program anchored by The Song of the Earth, Mahler’s infinitely wise and ingenious combination of song cycle and symphony. Add to that Christopher Theofandis’ Rainbow Body as an intriguing tribute to mystic medieval chant as mortal’s connection to the divine, and Britten’s kaleidoscopic sketches of the sea in its many moods.
