This is the second in the series which sees Trevor and the Academy perform and record works which are retrospectively reigniting Schoenberg's vision of performing chamber reductions of symphonic repertoire. This brand new edition was commissioned by Royal Academy of Music Principal Jonathan Freeman-Attwood who asked composer Anthony Payne (of Elgar's Third Symphony fame) if he would adopt the principles of Schoenberg's Society in a new version of this symphony.

Whilst employing a slightly larger ensemble than the core group used by Schoenberg, this scoring serves to reveal the luminescent appeal of a little-known nineteenth-century masterpiece - whilst also extending Schoenberg's and his pupils' practice of refined intimacy. Upon hearing the recording Anthony Payne remarked ‘the arrangement exceeded my most extravagant expectation...performed magnificently under Trevor Pinnock's direction by one of the finest chamber groups I've heard.'

Rounding off this recording is Strauss' Wein, Weib und Gesang arranged by Alban Berg, whose own pieces were regularly performed by the Society.
