Product Description

Product Description

Historical performance pioneer,Trevor Pinnock,conducts the Royal Academy of Music Ensemble in revealing chamber arrangements of Mahler's most frequently performed symphony and Debussy's Prelude a l'apres-midi d'un faune,on its debut recording for Linn.Arranged for Schoenberg's 1918 Society for Private Musical Performances,these reductions were designed to highlight the fresh perspective a stripped-back orchestration could offer the listener. With this recording,Trevor and the Academy launch a series of performances and recordings which are retrospectively reigniting Schoenberg's vision of performing chamber reductions of symphonic repertoire,including newly commissioned arrangements for this series.Erwin Stein's visionary transformation of Mahler's neo-classicist symphony is for fifteen players and soprano(Sonia Grane).A Mahler symphony of more modest proportions,it lends itself perfectly to a chamber arrangement.Benno Sachs re-orchestration of Prelude a l'apres-midi d'un faune retains many of the sounds of Debussy's original,using the span of the piano to fill out gaps in the texture,and the harmonium to sustain missing parts in the winds,additions which add much interest and afford a new coherence and sensuality to the melodic line.The recording is produced by Jonathan Freeman-Attwood,whose producing career has won him several awards including Diapasons d Ors,eight Gramophone Awards and many further nominations.
