Orchestra of the Swan have released their latest digital concert Timelapse 2.0. It draws inspiration from the Swan’s latest album Timelapse which was named Album of the Week by Classic FM & Scala Radio and has been streamed over 2 million times since its release in January.
In Timelapse, sounds of the past and present collide to form a unique musical landscape where notions of time and style become irrelevant, performed in bespoke orchestral arrangements by the Swan’s Artistic Director David Le Page.
Timelapse 2.0 showcases works from the medieval 14th-century street music of La Rotta to Radiohead’s modern-day masterpiece Pyramid Song. The orchestra perform Trysting Fields from Michael Nyman’s soundtrack to the 1988 film Drowning by Numbers, based entirely on Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante in E flat, and Grieg’s From Holberg’s Time, which recalls eighteenth-century dances in a programme enclosed by the haunting aria from Bach’s Goldberg Variations.
“The Timelapse concept enables past and present to mix and mingle with joyful abandon and to yield miraculous results.” Colin Clarke, Seen and Heard International
