A Jugendstil-inspired horror story set to the music of Gustav Mahler

An evocative narrative with influences ranging from Egon Schiele to Nosferatu

An evocative narrative with influences ranging from Egon Schiele to Nosferatu

Emerging from a primeval Central European forest to the first horn calls of the first Nachtmusik from Mahler’s Seventh Symphony, this spooky narrative pulls together themes from art and film of the early 20th century. Using both text and imagery, the piece utilizes the vernacular of silent film as a frame for Gary Kelley’s expressive artwork.
Nacthmusik is suitable for Halloween concerts or general programs, and requires full orchestra in a large concert hall. We can help incorporate spatial placement of musicians in addition to the normal screen set-up.

The New Live can provide assistance with programming and presentation so that this single movement video flows well with other works and within an entire concert experience. Coming in 2020 as a special add-on: Our own chamber version of Nachtmusik, drawing on the tradition of Mahler’s works arranged for small ensemble.

Nachtmusik is our most aesthetically sophisticated project, pulling together various artistic strands connected to Mahler and his time. At the 2017 premiere, “Kelley’s skill was in full display, transfixing audiences in a riveting display of artistry.”
