Notes & Reviews:
A recording of Mahler's most popular symphony in the ensemble version by Erwin Stein (featuring 13 players), live from the Spannungen Festival 2014.
This release is Erwin Stein's chamber arrangement of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 4. In 1921, Arnold Schoenberg organized a series of private concerts, performed by small ensembles. Schoenberg and Stein combined their ingenuity and created "sophisticated versions" of important orchestral works. These arrangements were usually for a few woodwinds, a string quintet, percussion and piano. Stein also added a harmonium, which was quite rare at the time but the organ adds a unique timbre to this arrangement.Notes & Reviews:
