One of the most popular posts on this website was during the summer, featuring Eric Whitacre’s haunting, choral version of Enjoy The Silence.
And who can forget Michal Matejcik’s versions of Halo, Enjoy The Silence and Clean, performed on the harp?
That attracted a large amount of traffic to the site, too.
Fans seem to like orchestral versions of Depeche Mode songs (also remember the orchestral part of the Quad: Final Mix)…!
One clip that has been doing the rounds in recent weeks features a series of Depeche tracks performed by the Prime Orchestra, filmed during a concert in the Ukraine.
The string arrangements are terrific, but I’d be curious to know if others feel the same about some of the pieces when the “traditional” rock instruments, saxophone and vocals kick in.
Still, enjoy it…
The track listing:
- Just Can’t Get Enough
- Behind The Wheel
- Personal Jesus
- Enjoy The silence
- Never Let Me Down Again
Here is the clip:
1 thought on “Ukrainian orchestra plays Personal Jesus, Enjoy The Silence and other Depeche classics”
Yes, I think I enjoy the orchestration on its own…
The minute you add the rock elements, it becomes something else entirely, and drowns out the nuance of the strings etc…
I also don’t think the singer added anything.
