Orchestra of the Swan have released a new mixtape album on Signum: Timelapse sets canonical composers alongside contemporaries, with Rameau meeting Reich and Radiohead, and Schubert against Satie and The Smiths.

Championed in orchestral arrangements by Artistic Director David Le Page, Timelapse brings together diverse musicians past and present, from the Baroque finesse of Rameau and Couperin and the Romantic writing of Grieg and Schubert to contemporary composers Thomas Adès and Errollyn Wallen, and popular stars including Radiohead and The Smiths.

The recording creates a space where sounds of the past and present collide to form a unique musical landscape, where notions of time and style become irrelevant, inspired by David Le Page’s multidisciplinary musical background.

Last week Timelapse was ‘Album of the Week’ on Simon Mayo’s show on Scala and is now Album of the Week on Classic FM.
