German folk songs become stirring orchestral pieces

In Des Knaben Wunderhorn, a collection of hundreds of German folk songs, Mahler found almost everything that touched his soul: love of nature, deep piety and the sorrow of death and parting. But the exuberant scenes of soldierly drumming and eccentric humour also appealed to him. In his Fourth Symphony, the melodies twine like a vine around the Wunderhorn lied Das himmlische Leben, a captivating vision of a heavenly feast.
