The inextricable link between Gilbert Kaplan and Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 is familiar to just about every music lover. The arrangement for chamber orchestra of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 by Gilbert Kaplan and Rob Mathes makes it possible for chamber orchestras to perform this piece, for which usually more than 100 musicians are needed.
The world première of the arrangement takes place on 17 February 2013 at the Wiener Konzerthaus, with Gilbert Kaplan conducting the Wiener KammerOrchester, the Wiener Singakademie and the soloists Marlis Petersen, soprano and Janina Baechle, mezzo-soprano.
