Gustav Mahler's Symphony #4 is considered by some to be the most accessible of his works.  It's filled with all of the characteristics that his writing is known for: colourful orchestration, grotesque gestures, incorporation of song.  French composer Serge Ollive has reorchestrated this masterpiece to make it accessible by chamber orchestras.  The number of parts was arrived at through a paring down of the original texture, resulting in a new clarity.
