In contrast to Symphony No. 8, also known as the Symphony of a Thousand, another of Gustav Mahlers vocal-instrumental pieces, Das Lied von der Erde, speaks in a highly intimate language, full of tenderness and deep sorrow, mirroring the very essence of the artists soul towards the end of his days. The grief, reflecting the painful events in the composers life and expressed in a variety of shades in all the six songs, seems to dissolve at the end of the work in the repeated, atoned forever , a word opening up the infinite space following the life on earth.
