Mahler (arr Schoenberg) Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (Songs of a Wayfarer)
Schoenberg Brettl-Lieder (Cabaret Songs)
Mahler (arr Erwin Stein) Symphony no 4

'Gustav Mahler was a saint' declared Arnold Schoenberg at the 1912 memorial service honouring the revered composer.

In tribute, Schoenberg arranged many of Mahler’s works for chamber orchestra including Songs of a Wayfarer. Schoenberg’s take on his friend’s moving depiction of grief is presented in this programme alongside his own playful and seductive Cabaret Songs. Also on the bill is Erwin Stein’s fine arrangement of Mahler’s Symphony no 4 for soprano and twelve players.

To direct this semi-staged performance, we’re delighted to welcome back Simon Butteriss who produced our stunning performance of Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale last year.
