What is this?


We are Natalia Ensemble and we want to share a project with you.

This spring, we will record Mahler's 5th Symphony in a chamber version, for the first time ever!

What is a Mahler 5th?

Gustav Mahler's Fifth Symphony, is a monumental piece of music, originally composed in 1902 for an orchestra of more than 100 people.
listen to it
[Soundcloud item unavailable]

We arranged it for an ensemble of 17 players and now we are ready to record it.

What is so special about this version?

The Fifth is a piece of art of stunning beauty.
listen a little more if you don't believe us

About our version, once a critic said that it was like "listening the symphony from within"... It is difficult to explain with words...

If you Don't know the symphony, you will fall in love with it after listening.
If you Do know it. This ensemble version will show you another way to experience it.

What is the money for?

The money will be used to pay for the recording, production and artwork expenses.

In April, we will come from all over Europe and gather in Zaragoza, where we will work together with a fantastic record label.

Who are we and Why do we do this?

Natalia is a group of 17 players.

After studying in the most prestigious conservatories in Europe, each one of the members works with leading european orchestras:
- Royal Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Dortmunder Philarmoniker, Gewandhaus Orchester Leipzig, Berliner Philharmoniker, Orquesta del Liceo de Barcelona, Danish National Orchestra, Royal Flemish Orchestra, Frankfurt Radio Orchestra, Filarmonica Toscanini, Deutsche Kammer Philharmonie Bremen.-

When we get together to make music in this context, we do it with passion. Just for the joy of bringing a piece of music to life.

Why should you pledge?

If you join our campaign, you are helping us a great deal to make this recording

But what you will really be supporting is our initiative of making music in a different way. Natalia is a project we are developing where we can take works of art like Mahler's Symphonies on stages where otherwise it wouldn't fit.

What will you get?

First of all, Thank You!.
Thank you for being here reading and sharing our project.
Besides that, our pledgers will get the rewards listed on the right.
Take a look.

When will it be ready?

The recording sessions will take place in April. We hope to have the CD in our hands around August.

    Hola Iván, Pensábamos ofrecer las 2 opciones. Sabemos que hay gente que aprecia la practicidad del mp3 y audiofilos que prefieren un formato lossless, así que lo ofreceríamos también en flac o un formato similar. Gracias a ti por tu pregunta!

#02 / Información actual sobre la grabacion

Queridos mecenas,

Queremos compartir con vosotros algunas imágenes de los días de grabación en Zaragoza.
Gracias a vuestro apoyo, pudimos llevar a cabo este emocionante proyecto. Fueron días muy intensos donde tuvimos la suerte de ser acompañados por un fantástico equipo de grabación. En el video, podréis escuchar a Tom Peeters, el ingeniero de sonido de Cobra Records, hablar de la experiencia que compartimos esos días.

Nos encontramos actualmente en la fase de edición del disco. Es un proceso relativamente largo y los discos estarán listos para el mes de diciembre.
Esperamos impacientemente el momento de poder escuchar el resultado final y compartirlo con vosotros. Por supuesto, en cuanto tengamos los discos en mano, os haremos llegar las recompensas correspondientes a vuestras aportaciones.
