UNC–Greensboro faculty members Donald Hartman, Clara O’Brien, and Jim Douglass perform Mahler’s epic song cycle Des Knaben Wunderhorn (The Youth’s Magic Horn). A collection of songs about soldiers, spirits, and love, Wunderhorn demonstrates the master composer’s ability to interpret German folk tales with stirring musical imagery.
Hartman and O’Brien translate the piece from solo voice to dramatic duet, creating an intense theatrical and musical dialogue between two performers and piano accompanist (Douglass).
