Farrington consciously avoids recreating the instrumentation of the Mahler arrangements made for Schoenberg’s Society for Private Musical Performances in Vienna between 1918 and 1921.
Instead, he aims to create a full orchestral picture from a chamber orchestra, using only the instruments found in the original score.
Under the direction of Founder and Artistic Director Ben Palmer since 2007, Covent Garden Sinfonia is firmly established as one of London’s most versatile and dynamic chamber orchestras. This event marks the opening of CGS’s 2019/20 season.
