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.

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.

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.
