Gustav Mahler: Des Knaben Wunderhorn by BI Baoyi, LIU Songhu, and Kaori Kitamura


Des Kanben Wunderhorn composed between 1888 and 1898 by Mahler are setting of German folk poems assembled by Achim von Arnim and Clemens Bretano. In those songs, Mahler covered a vast range of subjects and emotions, such as wishful romances, satirical parables, and harsh deaths of soldiers. Renowned conductor, Shaochia Lü, once said: “Listeners wanting a good appreciation of Mahler may enjoy exploring his song cycle Des Knaben Wundehorn for the most direct understanding of Mahler’s art. It is the lifelong fountainhead of Mahler’s inspiration. He not only wrote songs for the masses, bu all his symphonic works as well, are charged with elements Des Knaben Wunderhorn.”
