Pieces In A Modern Style 2


William Orbit


Released 22nd August 2010

Orbit produced, arranged, and performed a selection of his favourite classical compositions using modern electronic instruments and techniques, presenting them in his own unique and fresh style. His last album Pieces in a Modern Style connected timeless orchestral works with a pop-dance generation and sold almost a million copies in the process! The glorious Ferry Corsten remix of Samuel Barber's Adagio For Strings became a surprise hit that year and continues to maintain its dance floor anthem status to this day! The eagerly-awaited sequel Pieces in a Modern Style 2 is long overdue, and it proves confidently to be well worth the wait. For this album, Orbit brings us arrangements of works both well known and less familiar, by Vaughan Williams, Grieg, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Bellini, Porpora and given them an interpretation that could only be the result of his deep exploration of classical music and his years of immersion and zen-like understanding of electronic instrumentation.
