Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra – Mahler’s 4th Symphony

“Here, though, a single singer is in the spotlight to perform a lied, “Das himmlische Leben,” about the wonders of heavenly life, especially the excellent food to be found there, though the bit about Herod the butcher slaughtering the innocent lamb is rather grim. Soloist Laura Claycomb, with a rich, brilliant, and full soprano, was a nearly ideal fit here.”
