SPAIN: Andrea Motis & Joan Chamorro and L'Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès – Live at Palau de la Música (2015)

"In 2012 we recieved a proposal by the Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès to make a concert together in the cycle Simfònics al Palau. Immediatly we found the idea very interesting. Before, on our second album, Feeling Good, we had recorded some songs with a string quartet and we loved the experience. Now they gave us the opportunity to go further and be accompanied by a full symphonic orchestra. We accepted the proposal and we agreed on the repertoire to write the arrangements based on it, looking for a variety of rythms and that everyone felt comfortable.

The concert was a success and the result is reflected in this new work. We hope you enjoy it."
