All songs written by members of Orbestra.
An overachieving British ensemble does the Tchaikovsky composition method in reverse -- subverting classical music elements in the service of unrepentant traditional songs. Though the skittery textural arrangements only occasionally erupt into full-flung dance beats -- as on the Turkish-style Macedonian wedding romp, "Skopje" -- this is body music nonetheless. Eastern European folk songs fare the best, not merely surviving complex arrangements but prospering in an atmosphere of moody string and trombone counterpoint or orchestral coloration dank enough to enliven the most demanding fatalist. Case in point is the title cut, a six-minute suite based on Bartok's transcriptions of four unaccompanied Hungarian fiddle songs. ~ Bob Tarte
