The legacy of Chinese poetry includes thousands of songs and poems spanning over more than three millennia. Gustav Mahler himself was inspired by seven of these poems for his Lied von der Erde. The 16 Selected Chinese Art Songs presented here are shaped in structure and musical grammar by the famous European Lied compositions and yet the Chinese idiom is unmistakable. The songs represent poetry from a thousand years, set into music by composers of the 20th century.
