On 18.May 1911, exactly 100 years ago, Gustav Mahler died. I was wondering how I could pay tribute to this composer on this anniversary, and in the evening shortly after 8pm I began working on the "Urlicht".
7 hours later the rendition was finished.

I hope you Mahlerians like it! And those who think that one cannot play Mahler's music with GPO, please point out exactly what the shortcomings are. I think that it is possible to create Mahler's music with GPO4, one just has to do a little tinkering and has to cautiously use the samples.
btw, the final version of my rendition of Mahler's Symphony No.1 is ready. I had posted it last year at the 150th birthday of Gustav, but in the meantime I did a few changes. Especially I recorded the "Blumine" movement with a live trumpet player, mixed into the rest of the GPO:
