Mahler Wayfarer

The song cycle Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (Songs of a Wayfarer) was composed by Mahler around 1884-85, relatively early in his career. The collection consisted of 4 songs for which Mahler wrote his own lyrics. I – "Wenn mein Schatz Hochzeit macht" ("When My Sweetheart is Married") II – "Ging heut Morgen übers Feld" ("I Went This Morning over the Field") III – "Ich hab' ein glühend Messer" ("I Have a Gleaming Knife") IV – "Die zwei blauen Augen von meinem Schatz" ("The Two Blue Eyes of my Beloved") The songs were originally scored for voice and orchestra. Mahler did not specify whether the songs are for the male or female voice and they can be performed by a broad range of singers, from baritone to soprano. Later Mahler composed piano accompaniments available in several keys. The tuning option of Smartsoloist gives the singers the possibility to change the key signature of the orchestral accompaniment to suit his or her range. (see FAQ.) The orchestral accompaniment presented here was created by Uli Schauerte (https://www.uli-schauerte.de/
