Here’s something I’m really in two minds about; the Danish National Symphony Orchestra performing a suite of Blade Runner music live in concert, a recording coming soon on Blu-ray and Compact Disc. Its… interesting.
Like the New American Orchestra recording that came out way back in 1982, there’s something that just sounds ‘off’ with someone other than Vangelis playing these themes, although I do like the choral elements, they certainly seem to add something.Why they feel the need for a narrator to mimic the irritation of the dialogue that annoyed so much in Vangelis’ original 1994 soundtrack release just seems weird, though. Wouldn’t be surprised if the Greek maestro insisted on it just to further annoy the fans. But hey ho, Happy November, 2019….
