Philippe Quesne's thoughts on Das Lied von der Erde

Overview digital gestures

On the day of the first rehearsals for Das Lied von der Erde with the Klangforum Wien, we caught up with Philippe Quesne for a chat in February this year. In the interview the French theatre director talked about his thoughts and inspirations for the piece and gave us an insight into the stage production he was planning for the Wiener Festwochen. The meeting was also a first encounter with the Klangforum Wien, during which Philippe Quesne attended the rehearsal of Gustav Mahler’s late masterpiece The Song of the Earth, featuring Christina Daletska and Michael Pflumm under British conductor Finnegan Downie Dear. Das Lied von der Erde is to be presented in 2021 as part of the Wiener Festwochen!
