Spoleto Festival Special: The Song of the Earth; The Glory of Bach
Thursday, 6/4/09, 8 p.m.
Overview | Das Lied von der Erde | Spoleto Festival USA Orchestra | Mahler Rehearsal video

Emmanuel VillaumeHost Frank Dominguez takes you to Charleston, SC to hear Emmanuel Villaume conduct the Spoleto Festival USA Orchestra and soloists Russell Thomas, tenor, and Sasha Cooke, mezzo-soprano, in Gustav Mahler’s epic “song –symphony” Das Lied von der Erde - “The Song of the Earth.” We’ll also hear the orchestra join the Festival’s longtime resident chorus, the Westminster Choir, in a fascinating program that pairs Bach’s great Cantata No. 4, Christ lag in todesbanden, “Christ lay in the bonds of death,” with three remarkable sacred cantatas by German composer Dietrich Buxtehude, born a half-century before Bach. Andrew Megill is the conductor in a concert recorded at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Charleston.
