Classical Trancelations in Concert (26.08.2016) @ Helsinki, Finland

The energy, thrill and euphoria of trance interpreted by a grand symphony orchestra… Curated by Orkidea, Classical Trancelations in Concert took place on August 26th 2016 in Helsinki and combined the visual grandeur and production of raves with the world of classical music concerts.
 
The concert debuted arrangements of Lowland’s pieces, tailor-made by composer Pessi Levanto. The first Classical Trancelations in Concert was sold out in a record of 15 minutes and was followed with a second show on the same evening.
 
You can watch the full show here again. Will the goose bumps ever go away?

Lowland – Classical Trancelations 2

Lowland – Classical Trancelations 2

Almost exactly seven years after the launch of the unique ‘Classical Trancelations’ concept, the follow-up to Lowland’s far-famed album has been released through Armada Music. The album, logically titled ‘Classical Trancelations 2’, encapsulates classical interpretations of some of the most iconic Trance hits to date.
 
With records by Armin van Buuren (‘Blue Fear’, ‘Rush Hour’, ‘Mirage’), Dash Berlin (‘Till The Sky Falls Down’), and Rank 1 (‘Airwave’) amongst the trance songs receiving the orchestral treatment, the album aims to unite trance fans and admirers of classical music.
The composer behind the reworks is producer Petri Alanko, known for scoring the psycho-thrilling game ‘Alan Wake’ and subsequently honored with the ‘Best Score 2010’ award at the Annual Game Music Awards. The Finnish musician made the classical interpretations of the Trance hits under his Lowland alias, and even added one of his own original compositions as an added bonus track.
 
The album counts as one of the year’s highlights for a lot of Trance fans. The original tunes, created by the likes of Armin van Buuren, Dash Berlin, Chicane, John O’Callaghan, Mike Foyle, Orkidea, Paul Oakenfold, Rank 1, and Veracocha (Ferry Corsten & Vincent de Moor), are considered to be full-fledged Trance classics amongst the widespread following of the genre.
 
Lowland – Classical Trancelations 2 will be out on September 11th 2015!
