Choir of the Earth presents: Mahler Symphony No. 8

Public premiere

Add to my Calendar 09-02-2022 19:30 09-02-2022 21:30 36 Choir of the Earth presents: Mahler Symphony No. 8 Following our very successful recent charity premiere, Choir of the Earth is proud to publicly premiere our amazing production of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 8 in E-flat! Maher 8 is an exciting work for double chorus, children's chorus, soloists, orchestra, and organ and is often called the 'Symphony of a Thousand' due to the number of performers required. We believe Choir of the Earth is the only choir in the world to rehearse and recorded this remarkable music in 2021. In January 2022, after 12 months of work, John Warner conducted over 1,000 separate voices, a children's choir, a full orchestra and soloists in a unique performance of the complete Mahler 8. He has since finessed the final performance and we will now release this revised interpretation at a public screening. Please join us at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYIcyf7E3f4 The choir, orchestra and soloists all recorded their music from home. The only group to record their part together was the children's choir in Mexico. The teaching, conducting and sound engineering was completed by John Warner, whose dedication to creating this online version of Mahler 8 has been extraordinary. The orchestration is provided by John's Orchestra for the Earth. The children's choir are from the Conservatorio Gustav Mahler de Irapuato, Salamanca, Mexico - a school that has a strong association with Mahler and is doing wonders for the education of these children via the power of music.
