Notes and Editorial Reviews

For this, a Volume 2 sequel album, William Orbit has created electronic arrangements of classical works both well known and less familiar. The album features arrangements based on music by Vaughan Williams, Grieg, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Bellini and Porpora and has 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.
