programme note

I was commissioned by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra to create a set of arrangements to be performed at the opening night of the Gustav Klimt Exhibition at Tate Liverpool, one of the centrepieces of Liverpool’s year as European Capital of Culture. I arranged music from Vienna that was written around the time that Klimt was working there. The full contents are as follows:

Arnold Schoenberg: Four Cabaret Songs from Brettl-Lieder: (Gigerlette, Mahnung, Jedem das Seine, Arie aus dem Spiegel von Arcadien)

Alma Maria Schindler-Mahler: Four Lieder (Die Stille Stadt, Bei dir ist es traut, Ekstase, Der Erkennende)
