Mahler wrote Symphony no. 10 in the summer of 1910 in Toblach. Everything was against him in his artistic work: a marital life crisis and deteriorating health. The composer didn't manage to win his race against the clock, fate did that. Mahler left the unfinished piece as one of his musical testimonies.
Symphony no. 10 is one of the most mysterious compositions by Mahler, which began to enjoy a second life after the composer's death. And it has been a very intense life, undergoing many reconstructions, new pieces have been added, and new versions of the whole compositions are being written even today.
The musical duo Matthew Herbert and Henrik Marstall also confronted Mahler's composition. The creator of British electronic music Microhouse, together with the Danish composer, attempted this classical piece. The effects of their work were recorded on an album released by the most famous label in classical music – Deutsche Grammophon under the Recomposed series. Szczecin music lovers will have the advantage of hearing these uncommon musicians live, interpreting this outstanding composition by Mahler in an original and fresh way.
