Newstalgia Mid-Week Concert - Orchestre Philharmonique De Radio France Play Music Of Varese And Pink Floyd.

Newstalgia Mid-Week Concert with Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France conducted by Pierre-Andre Valade and Jean-Jacques Justafre in music of Edgar Varese and Pink Floyd.

<strong>The Orchestra plays Atom Heart Mother</strong>.




Something out of the ordinary, delayed-broadcast earlier today from a concert given on January 12th featuring the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France playing music of Edgar Varese and Pink Floyd.

Deserts by Edgar Varese and Atom Heart Mother by Pink Floyd. I told you it was unusual.

The Orchestra is led by Pierre-Andre Valade in the Varese and Jean-Jacques Justafre in the Pink Floyd.

I've split the concert up between three players with the second (or middle) player featuring an interview with Ron Geesin who provided the original orchestra scoring for the album as well as the 2008 revision and is featured on Piano during this concert.

Needless to say, the audience is enthusiastic and even the folks at Radio France Musique are having a good time.

Here's the rundown for the program:
