Something Borrowed explores our drive to make new work from old. World premieres of "re-composed" (Alma) Mahler, Schoenberg, and more!

J.S. Bach/Ben Stevenson: Contrapuntus VII
Alma Mahler/Akshaya Avril Tucker/Seo Yoon Kim/Adeliia Faizullina: Alma Mahler Commissioning Project,  lieder by Alma Mahler "recomposed"
Gustav Mahler/Arnold Schoenberg: Songs of a Wayfarer
Arnold Schoenberg: Kammersymphonie No. 1

 We challenged some of Austin's finest emerging composers to "re-compose" and re-imagine songs for voice and piano by  Alma Mahler to become new works for chamber orchestra. Featuring composers Akshaya Avril Tucker, Adeliia Faizullina, and Seo Yoon Kim, the "re-composed" lieder are paired with Songs of a Wayfarer by Alma's first husband, Gustav Mahler, and orchestrated by Arnold Schoenberg. Concert open with Ben Stevenson's version of Bach's "Contrapuntus VII" and closes with Schoenberg's Kammersymphonie No. 1, once described by a famous guy  "hyperactive, acrobatic and not a little aggressive".
