Trevor Pinnock

Trevor Pinnock is recognised worldwide as a harpsichordist and conductor who pioneered performance on historical instruments with The English Concert. He is Principal Guest Conductor of the Royal Academy's Concert Orchestra.
profile & recordings >>

Arranged for Schoenberg's 1918 Society for Private Musical Performances, these reductions were designed to highlight the fresh perspective a stripped-back orchestration could offer the listener.  With this recording, Trevor and the Academy launch a series of performances and recordings which are retrospectively reigniting Schoenberg's vision of performing chamber reductions of symphonic repertoire, including newly commissioned arrangements for this series.

Erwin Stein's visionary transformation of Mahler's neo-classicist symphony is for fifteen players and soprano (Sonia Grane). A Mahler symphony of more modest proportions, it lends itself perfectly to a chamber arrangement.  Benno Sachs' re-orchestration of Prelude a l'apres-midi d'un faune retains many of the sounds of Debussy's  original, using the span of the piano to fill out gaps in the texture, and the harmonium to sustain missing parts in the winds, additions which add much interest and afford a new coherence and sensuality to the melodic line.

MusicWeb International
‘Overall however this is a performance to treasure, crowned by a delightfully natural account of the soprano solo in the last movement by Sónia Grané.’

Infodad
'Sensitively scaled arrangement brings forth elements of Mahler that are always there but that tend to disappear beneath the excellence of his orchestrations.'

BBC Music Magazine
'Trevor Pinnock directs a disciplined and expressive performance...'


The Guardian
4 Stars
'The introduction of the soprano soloist (Sónia Grané here) for the final movement becomes utterly natural, and creates all kinds of unexpected connections, not only with Mahler's own songs but with Schoenberg's works, too. A satisfying, thought-provoking disc.'

'Don't dismiss this stripped-down version of Mahler's symphony, says Philip Clark. Trevor Pinnock and his players have uncovered a gem from the Viennese musical underworld.'

Gramophone
'Under Pinnock, the Royal Academy of Music's Chamber Ensemble bring to the surface the lithe counterpoint that usually lumbers under thicker string textures, while soprano Sonia Grane succeeds admirably in illuminating the piece's inner folksong.'

'The stripped-back orchestration of both pieces offer the listener a fresh perspective on these popular works.'

‘Trevor Pinnock communicated energy, enthusiasm and natural phrasing to the RAM students. He brought a beauty to the Mahler.'
