The Seven Symphonies – A classical tribute to Beach Boys music by the Antwerp Philharmonic Orchestra. Arrangements by Roeland Jacobs.
For four years, Roeland Jacobs (musician and arranger) and Rob van Weelde (co-founder of WedgeView Studios and owner of the WedgeView label) worked on the project The Seven Symphonies – A classical tribute to Beach Boys music. For this project, 33 songs by the Beach Boys were selected and reworked into seven symphonies, paying attention to their beauty and classical potential. They did not let themselves be led by the fame of the songs. Rob divided the songs into seven symphonies, namely Capella, Room For Nature, Beach Waltz, The Nearest Faraway Symphony, Symphony Of The Unknown, Symphony Of The Little Bird and the Pet Symphony. Roeland then wrote the arrangements for large orchestra.
The Seven Symphonies were recorded with the musicians of the Antwerp Philharmonic Orchestra at the beginning of August 2021 in the Galaxy Studios in Mol, Belgium. The whole performance was conducted by the Brazilian conductor Alexandra Arrieche.
The album is available now on CD and vinyl!
