It was in 1920 that Schoenberg undertook a transcription for small orchestra of Mahler's Das lied von der Erde, intended for the viennese society for private musical performances. But he was unable to complete it, and it was only in 1983 that the musicologist Rainer Riehn took up where Schoenberg had left off and produced a finished version. the result is quite etraordinary: Schoenberg not only managed to reproduces all the original sonorities, he also brought out the extreme density of the score.
