Bernard Haitink conducts Schubert and Mahler

They are among the most expressive symphonic works ever: Mahler’s Lied von der Erde and Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony. An exciting conceptual parallel can be drawn by juxtaposing them: in both cases, fragile folksy gaiety suddenly changes into sheer despair. Besides Bernard Haitink, who is especially highly esteemed as a Mahler interpreter, you can experience tenor Christian Elsner and baritone Christian Gerhaher.
