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.
