Classical German musical performances and songs.

(Songs on the death of children), by Gustav Mahler (1860-1911). Concert with the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra, director: Honna Tetsuji.

“Kindertotenlieder” (Songs on the death of children) was composed by Gustav Mahler between 1901 and 1904 based on work produced by the poet Friedrich Rückert as he processed the loss of his two children.

Mahler lost 6 of his 11 siblings during childhood and was touched by Rückert's poems.

Symphony No. 8 from Franz Schubert rounds out the program.

Also known as “The Great,”the composition is considered Schubert’s crowning symphonic work. Robert Schumann praised the “masterly technique” and “heavenly length of the symphony”.
