The early songs by were never orchestrated by Mahler himself, though over the years many people have created their own version of them. Colin and David Matthews, whose relationship with the music of Mahler is well-known, have collaborated on the orchestration of these songs.

Josef Weinberger is proud to announce the release the final performing version of these songs for the first time.
