Today’s bounty features Das Lied von der Erde with Shirley Verrett and Stuart Burrows; Jonas Kaufmann’s Kindertotenlieder; Sena Jurinac and Margaret Price in selections from the Rückert Lieder and Des Knaben Wunderhorn, respectively; and the fourth movement solo of the Third Symphony featuring Marianne Crebassa.

These items were chosen because they feature artists not normally associated with Mahler like Verrett, Burrows and Jurinac, or else interpretations that haven’t been commercially recorded like the Kindertotenlieder of Jonas Kaufmann who did a while back put out a CD doing Das Lied all by himself!

Unfortunately, the interesting Georg Solti-led Das Lied was not broadcast and the rare in-house recording from Carnegie Hall isn’t in the best sound.
