Notes & Reviews:

This CD continues SOMM's close collaboration with the Orchestra of the Swan under its charismatic conductor, David Curtis. This live recording was made during the orchestra's first concert season as Resident Chamber Orchestra at Birmingham's prestigious Town Hall. The CD contains the chamber version of Mahler's 4th Symphony arranged for chamber ensemble by Schoenberg's pupil Erwin Stein, coupled with a premiere recording of Berlioz's Les Nuits d'été arranged for voice and chamber ensemble by well-known British composer David Matthews, sung here by distinguished mezzo-soprano Heather Shipp.
