Symphonic forces take new form with an electrifying presentation of Mahler’s ‘Titanic’ work.
About The Music
Mahler’s symphonies are recognised for their orchestral might, however the composer often draws on pure chamber music textures in his work to achieve his impressive sound. In this thrilling chamber arrangement by British composer Iain Farrington, the vast orchestral forces are harnessed by 15 soloists, revealing hidden details in the score and the power of Mahler’s gestures and intricacy. This performance is accompanied by a quintet presentation of Chopin’s luscious Piano Concerto No.1 and a World Premiere work by Australian composer Gordon Kerry.
