In 1894, around the time that he was completing his Resurrection Symphony, Gustav Mahler planned to transcribe Schubert’s penultimate quartet for string orchestra, notating copious details about intended instrumentation, dynamics and articulation in his copy of the score. He only completed one movement – the second – which he conducted in Hamburg in November 1894, in the course of an orchestral series which he had taken over from his recently-deceased friend Hans von Bu?low. The other three movements were arranged from Mahler’s annotations by the scholar Donald Mitchell and the composer David Matthews.

Press reviews

Classical CD Choice

“While long celebrated for its remarkable brass section, the London Symphony Orchestra is rightly proud of its world-class string players, so it should come as no surprise that this coupling of two transcriptions for string orchestra of string quartets should be so accomplished. The new LSO Live recording is a tempting proposition if you’re attracted to this particular coupling.”
