Part of the greatness of Das Lied von der Erde lies in the fact that it broke the boundaries of the traditional symphony and initiated new methods of symphonic composition. This piece fused into one artistic masterpiece many opposite but related concepts: Eastern and Western, ancient and modern, life and death, dream and reality, sadness and joy, gathering and separating, poetry and music, instrumental and vocal. Mahler’s compositional techniques in Das Lied von der Erde, namely Mahler’s application of the Chinese pentatonic scale and orchestration in order to show how he presents his own image of Chinese musical elements. Chinese artistic thinking always emphasizes the universalities relating to the human condition. Mahler adopted a similarly universal perspective when he fused seven Chinese poems into one symphonic piece. His editing and unifying made the text more meaningful and colourful. Das Lied von der it is indeed a brilliant representation of Mahler’s concept of Chinese art and a significant example of cultural and artistic integration.
