The Orchestra Rocks

Saturday, November 08, 2008

Listen to Joby Talbot’s remarkable orchestrations of songs by The White Stripes - "Aluminium" - on this edition of New Sounds. Talbot, who was part of the cult British band The Divine Comedy, has collaborated with Ute Lemper, and has written some killin’ scores for films, in addition to re-imagining Jack White’s blues-based tunes. There’s also music by Jaz Coleman, who founded the legendary post-punk experimental group, Killing Joke. We’ll hear Coleman's violin concerto based on songs by The Doors. The work was written for Nigel Kennedy, and commemorates those who fell in the Vietnam War. Also, hear Philip Glass’s “Low Symphony,” based on music by David Bowie and Brian Eno. Plus orchestral music by rockers Jon Lord, and David Byrne and more.
