Cinematic Orchestra

Live At The Royal Albert Hall

NINJA TUNE

Released: 7th April 2008 | 9 track album
Last spring saw the release of latest album Ma Fleur and 2007 saw the band's most intense touring schedule to date. More and more requests for live recordings and more and more sell out shows. So when it came to the end of the year and a return to the city from where the band was first realised, the question was Where? Where can you do the kind of show which will do celebrate a history and at the same time create something new? The band had always wanted a chance to develop into the Orchestra of their name, but they needed the kind of venue with the flexibility, the acoustics and the sheer scale to make it work.In the end there was only one place… On November 2nd 2007, Jason Swinscoe brought an enhanced line-up of the Cinematic Orchestra, incorporating the 24 piece Heritage Orchestra to this amazing venue and played a show to a sold-out crowd of more than 4000 people. With over 40 musicians onstage at times, Swinscoe and his colleagues used the show as a unique opportunity to open out his chamber pieces into intense, beautiful and exquisitely realised epics which left the huge audience baying for more. Featuring vocal contributions from Heidi Vogel, Lou Rhodes (formerly of Lamb) and Grey Reverend, plus the return of original member PC on turntables, an intense, beautiful night is captured here in all it's glory. History as it's lived, human emotion, love and rapture. You can feel it in the hairs on the back of your neck…
