MAHLER 7

Alma Mahler Kammerorchester’s first commision!

For its first commission, AMK collaborated with Klaus Simon to give birth to a chamber orchestra arrangement of the monumental Gustav Mahler's 7th Symphony. Mr. Simon is already well established and famous for his arrangements of Mahler's works (including 4 of his Symphonies and numerous songs). His arrangement of the 1st Symphony ("The Titan") also served as the central piece of Alma Mahler Kammerorchester's very first "Genesis" project in 2017….

For its summer residency, the Alma Mahler Kammerorchester was working on a new program entitled "Nature vs. Industry" featuring works by Hindemith, Wagner, Connesson and Debussy. This program aimed to deal with the loss of innocence and the conflicting nature of these two realms. We wanted the performance to go beyond just the musical experience and bring a reflection on what is both a sociological and philosophical issue…

DANSES PROFANES

What better place than Vienna, city of Alma Mahler herself, for our second residency?

It was an honour to perform in this culturally rich city which has always been a meeting place for numerous artists, such as Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Alban Berg, Gustav Mahler, Arnold Schoenberg, Stefan Zweig, and so many others.

We aimed to rediscover the "classical" repertoire, this time with works by Debussy, Dvořák, Martinů, Poulenc and Ravel, in surprising chamber music settings: …

GENESIS

In July 2017, Alma Mahler Kammerorchester had its first residency in Villa Manin in Italy, which marked its musical birth – its genesis. Together, we performed four concerts in this beautiful venue, all of which were very enthusiastically received by the audience – our two orchestral concerts were sold out.

The main programme, subtitled Genesis, involved two pieces by Richard Wagner and Gustav Mahler: Siegfried Idyll and the 1st symphony (in an arrangement by Klaus Simon) respectively. We are very grateful to Leo McFall, who conducted us during both of these projects…
