Enjoy some interpretations over your lunch break and join us for a special world premiere of ’re-composed’ works by (Alma) Mahler, Schoenberg, and more from Density512!
Density512 challenged some of Austin’s finest emerging composers to ’re-compose’ and re-imagine songs for voice and piano by the late-Romantic German composer Alma Mahler to become new works for chamber orchestra. Featuring composers Akshaya Avril Tucker, Adeliia Faizullina, and Seo Yoon Kim, the ’re-composed’ lieder will be paired with Songs of a Wayfarer, a quintessential work by Alma’s husband, Gustav Mahler, and orchestrated by Arnold Schoenberg. Concert closes with Schoenberg’s Kammersymphonie No. 1, once described by a famous guy ’hyperactive, acrobatic and not a little aggressive’.
