Description

”Mahler Songs” is an enormous transcription project, which has taken two years to complete. The original orchestration is here re-arranged for a grand symphonic organ. The intention is to get to know how the beyond-the-world aspect in Mahlers music and song texts can be deepened through the encounter with the sacred room and the organ as a sacred instrument. The recording has been made with 10 microphones in a surround system in the Vasa Church, Göteborg, Sweden. The fantastic orchestral organ of this church was built in 1909 and has been fundamental for awakening the idea and inspiring its fulfillment.
