We’ve got more of Polly’s fine photographs to share, so here’s one of David with the orchestra at Abbey Road.
The orchestra was recorded by Simon Rhodes, led by David Juritz and conducted by Robert Ziegler.
Robert Ziegler has conducted most of the major British orchestras and is considered one of Britain’s most innovative musicians. He has worked with the likes of Lionel Richie, Debbie Harry and Ute Lemper. He was Musical Director on 2004’s ‘Just One of Those Things’, a film about Cole Porter’s life and music. He also recorded the film music of Zbigniew Preisner for ‘The Last September’.
Yesterday you told us which songs sound great with the inclusion of saxophone. So how about naming some David Gilmour/Pink Floyd songs which you feel are very much enhanced by the orchestra’s contribution? Think particularly of those songs which do not currently feature any significant orchestral arrangements, but might sound interesting were an orchestra added.
Thanks for all your comments so far.
More examples of Polly’s camera work coming shortly.
