Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 is one of the closest to chamber music of all of Mahler’s immense output. This unique arrangement by Klaus Simon from 2007 retains Mahler’s unmistakable orchestral sound within an intimate and innovative chamber setting. This exceptional work draws new life from Mahler’s Symphony. The Ensemble is joined by New York-based Australian soprano Jane Sheldon for the Symphony’s final movement presenting a child’s view of heaven as a place of serene delight. Accompanying this German epic are two Australian works including a World Premiere of a Chamber Symphony for ensemble and soprano. This Symphony is composed by Mark Isaacs and was commissioned especially for Omega Ensemble.
