Hebrides Ensemble at Lammermuir Festival

Monday 13 September 2021, 8.00pm – 9.10pm at St Mary’s Church, Haddington

Programme

Mahler arr. Schoenberg Das Lied von der Erde

Joshua Ellicott, Tenor
Roderick Williams, Baritone
Hebrides Ensemble
William Conway, Conductor

Lammermuir Festival returns with live audiences in September 2021 – and Hebrides Ensemble are delighted to be part of it performing Schoenberg’s chamber arrangement of this Mahler masterpiece, in the company of two exceptional singers: Joshua Ellicott and Roderick Williams.

The impetus for Mahler’s composition of The Song of the Earth came from a period of personal tragedy including the diagnosis of a potentially fatal heart defect. For him, said Bruno Walter, “The world and life now lay in the sinister shadow of [death’s] nearness”, and this moving allegory of transitory human existence merging into eternity proved to be his final testament.
