Symphony No. 4 in G Major, Full Score
Instrumentation: 1d1. 1d1. 2d Eflat & bass cl. 1 – 2. 1. 0. 0 – 2 (3) perc. 1 hrp – str.
This arrangement of Mahler’s most intimate orchestral work can be performed by a chamber orchestra of approximately 26 to 34 players. The arrangement remains very faithful to Mahler’s original and is ideal for professional chamber orchestras, academic conducting programs, student conductor concerts, or whenever the full orchestral forces required for the original are not present.

Note from the arranger:
My objective in arranging Mahler’s Fourth Symphony was to emphasize the work’s chamber-like aspects while remaining faithful as possible to the original. I carefully studied the original score and decided to use the same forces as Wagner’s Siegfried-Idyll with the addition of harp and percussion. I believe an ensemble of 26 to 34 players strikes a good balance between something that resembles a small ensemble and a full orchestra. I hope that this arrangement will enable performances of this work wherever the full forces of the original are not present so that musicians and audiences can experience this masterwork firsthand. -Yoon Jae Lee
