Hear new arrangements of movements from Mahler’s Tenth and Das Lied von der Erde by composer-conductor Michel Galante, under-appreciated songs by Alma Mahler, and new music inspired by both Gustav and Alma Mahler’s work from composers Patricia Alessandrini, Jesse Jones, and Taylor Brook.

Co-produced with the Austrian Cultural Forum as part of the Moving Sounds festival.
