Offpiste Gurus with Klaipeda Chamber Orchestra
Every month I will pick and featured a video here at the top of my video page. It can be a brand new video, but it can also be an old yet special one. Like this one.
The songs in this playlist are all recorded by the Lithuanian national television back on July 27th 2013. My then musical home away-from-home-band Offpiste Gurus, which I co-led with Fredrik Lundin, had the fantastic exsperience of working with Klaipeda Chamber Orchestra/Klaipeda Kamerinis Orkestras. We'd been invited by their artistic director and cello Mindaugas Bačkus. In Offpiste Gurus there were only 4, so it was a very special feeling to have the sound of our songs extented with all those classical instruments. To sing when the violins "sung" with me, was such an incredible feeling. I hope at some point in my life, I will get the chance againt to sing with a big classical orchestra.
