John Grant & the Royal Northern Sinfonia, Royal Festival Hall, London
(Photograph by Abbey Raymonde)
In November 2014 I orchestrated songs from John's two solo albums, "Queen of Denmark" and "Pale Green Ghosts", for a UK tour with the Royal Northern Sinfonia. The tour sold out and received phenomenal reviews.
"Fabulous, Fantastical, Magnificent" 5/5
- The Guardian
"The collaboration-with-an-orchestra that all other collaborations-with-an-orchestra call "Sir".. it's probably my gig of the year. And yes, I know in the year Kate Bush hit the road that's asking for trouble, but hey. Completely incredible"
- Ian Wade, The Quietus.
