Hallelujah: The Portsmouth Sinfonia at the Royal Albert Hall

A perfect title for the unholy cacophony unleashed by the Sinfonia live at the Royal Albert Hall, of all places. Comes off more like a comedy record than an evening of classical favorites.
In its own way, this is a "top notch" live recording.
Ever wonder why Brian Eno isn't better known for his chops on the clarinet?
On this blog I try to post a wide array of records providing any kind non-professional mess to help you unwind, forget, and just laugh. This one is no exception.


  1. Thanks very much. Just reading eno's biography and I'm curious to hear this.

  2. Surely not what you'd expect from Eno, but it made me love the guy (and everyone else in the Sinfonia) even more.
