BERNARDA FINK - February dedicated to Gustav Mahler

Bernarda Fink has a special relationship with Gustav Mahler’s song cycles and symphonies. Mahler’s first four symphonies were inspired by songs, and Bernarda Fink’s love of the art song is an important reason she began singing in the first place. Therefore, it is logical that she is a frequent and popular guest of all the European and American symphony orchestras when Mahler is programmed.

Her Mahler series in February begins with concert performances of Das Lied von der Erde in Maastricht, Eindhoven and Den Bosch:


Benjamin Britten: Four Sea Interludes
Gustav Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth)


Bernarda Fink, mezzosoprano
Robert Dean Smith, tenor

South Netherlands Philharmonic
Conductor: Hans Graf
