The good folk of Qobuz have worked out a spiffy gift voucher for their listeners for the BerlinPhil’s Digital Hall.
Say you want to watch the concert tomorrow Saturday December 17 (Janáček and Mahler, c. Rattle, singers von Otter, Skelton, Finley).
Go to this page.
Enter this code into the voucher space: QBZ798
Follow the instructions. If you’re not logged on, the system will ask you to do so. If you don’t have an account at the BerlinPhil, you will be asked to make one. It takes a minute.
Log on with your new/old account, and you’re in. Your ticket is valid for 48 hours from the time you watch your first thing. If you start tomorrow at 2pm EST (when the above concert starts), you can return to the BerlinPhil archives and watch anything you like there until Monday 2pm.
If you’re German-challenged, like, ahem, me, go to the usual place for the original text and the translations of Das Lied von der Erde.
Any talk of the Erde Lied can’t pass without a mention of Christa Ludwig. So.
See you tomorrow.
