On "Perfect Strangers", The Norwegian Radio Orchestra and conductor Thomas Sondergard present a recording of the February 11, 2010, concert that the orchestra did in Oslo.
At this concert, the ensemble present works by Heiner Goebbels and by Frank Zappa.
Heiner Goebbels 'Suite For Sampler And Orchestra From Surrogate Cities' is performed next to Frank Zappa's 'Dog / Meat', 'Dupree's Paradise', 'The Perfect Stranger', 'G-Spot Tornado' and 'Revised Music For Low Budget Orchestra'.
This is good. This is very good.
I've been listening to the album with my headphones on and the sound is excellent. Especially the percussion sounds superb.
I definitely need to hear this through my stereo speakers.
That'll most likeley be something for tomorrow.
Essential listening !!
