"And all, all was well again! / [...] Love and pain / and world and dream!" So ends the fourth of Gustav Mahler's Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, settings of texts the composer had partly taken from the collection "Des Knaben Wunderhorn" (the lad's magic horn), recompiling and extending them. Inspired by Franz Schubert's Wilhelm Müller song cycles, the brief cycle depicts the sorrowful tale of a lover who as a "journeyman" is no less than the Romantic "wanderer". As with Schubert, Mahler's protagonist transcends his crisis, the conclusion pointing "in the sense of an eternity that is to be expected" (Christian Gerhaher) to his redemption. But first he passes through various relay-stations that are part dreamlike vision, part earthbound reality. Konstantin Ingenpaß'debut album with works by Wolf, Liszt, Ullmann and Mahler in chamber-musical arrangements - under the headline: World and Dream.
