Mahler - a really fine disc

An impressive performance from the Smithsonian Chamber Players in a vocal arrangement of Mahler's Symphony No. 4

Composer: Mahler    
Repertoire: Symphony No.4 arranged for chamber ensemble
Artists: Smithsonian Chamber Players/Kenneth Slowik
Rating: 5/5 
Genre: Chamber/Vocal
Label: Dorian DOR-90315

In pre-recording days, arranging chamber scores of large orchestral works was quite an industry, and at their best they could be works of art in themselves. These two superb versions are outstandingly performed, with beautifully responsive and balanced interplay between the individual instruments, and both soloists offering seriously fine singing.
