PREVIEW
'Kindertotenlieder' (Songs on the Death of Children) is a song cycle for voice and orchestra by Gustav Mahler. The words of the songs are poems by Friedrich Rückert. Mahler selected five of Rückert's poems to set as Lieder, which he composed between 1901 and 1904. The songs are written in Mahler's late-romantic idiom, and like the texts reflect a mixture of feelings: anguish, fantasy resuscitation of the children, resignation. The work is scored for a vocal soloist (mostly a baritone or mezzo-soprano) and a small orchestra. German arranger Christian Schüller transcribed the complete cycle for voice with accompaniment of a Symphonic Band.
