Gustav Mahler: Rückert Lieder
for Trombone

These five settings of texts by Friedrich Rückert are some of Mahler's most intimate and heartfelt works. For the trombonist they offer the opportunity to explore the softly expressive side of the instrument, an aspect sometimes missing from the typical trombone recital.

Included in the set are:
     Ich atmet' einen linden Duft
     Liebst du um Schönheit
     Blicke mir nicht in die Lieder
     Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen
     Um Mitternacht
