New European Ensemble releases new CD ‘Songs Along the Way’ with compositions by Jeff Hamburg and Gustav Mahler

New European Ensemble presents a new CD titled ‘Songs Along the Way’ including compositions by Gustav Mahler and Dutch composer Jeff Hamburg. Jeff Hamburg composed Songs Along The Way and adapted Gustav Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen for mezzo soprano Helena van Heel. The texts from Lao Tse from the Tao te Ching are central in Songs Along the Way and have a striking overlap with the experiences from the ‘journeyman’ in the song cycle by Mahler. The work A Prayer for Colomba, a plea for world piece, is also included in the album.
The CD will be released on Etcetera Records on April 9th, 2021.
