The Korean composer Unsuk Chin’s concerto “Šu” for the sheng virtuoso Wu Wei and orchestra meets Gustav Mahler’s setting of Hans Bethge’s cycle of free adaptations of Chinese poems: “Das Lied von der Erde”, that Bruno Walter called “one single, passionate, bitter, renunciatory and benedictive sound of farewell”: a work that was never performed during the composer’s lifetime.
