Throughout his lifetime, Gustav Mahler's musical imagination got sparked by the Wunderhorn anthology of folk poetry compiled by Achim von Arnim and Clemens Brentano. Whether autonomous lieder or conscripted into symphonic service, Mahler’s Wunderhorn settings represent some of his most exotic, exhilarating, but also visionary music. The Wunderhorn songs evoke and celebrate a lost era but they also prefigure its demise. Mahler captures this ambiguity in uncompromisingly melodious and idyllic, but also satiric, relentless and cruel music. In this soundtrack from the movie WUNDERHORN by Clara Pons, baritone Dietrich Henschel, “a towering figure, physically, intellectually, musically and theatrically” (Herald Scotland) gives a vibrant rendition of 24 Lieder from Gustav Mahler’s “Des Knaben Wunderhorn”, masterly accompanied by the Bochumer Symphoniker under the baton of Steven Sloane.
