Product Description

Deluxe CD/DVD Edition. 2010 live album from the former Police man and solo superstar. Culled from Sting's critically acclaimed world tour, Symphonicity, this live CD/DVD compilation features many of his greatest hits, including "Roxanne," "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic," "King Of Pain," "Fields Of Gold," and more, all re-imagined for symphonic arrangement. Featuring special guest Branford Marsalis on select tracks, this live concert experience is quintessential Symphonicity! Recorded September 21 at the O2 Arena, Live in Berlin captures Sting, for the first time, on the acclaimed Symphonicity world tour, which has garnered rave reviews from sold-out performances in prestigious venues such as Red Rocks in Denver, the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, London's Royal Albert Hall, among others.

Review

"If you have the chance to hear Sting's greatest hits performed with a symphony orchestra, it is one that you don't want to miss." -- Diena (Tallinn)

"Pairing Sting with the orchestra is brilliant synchronicity on multiple levels. He's a consummate showman and a willful storyteller." -- The Denver Post

"Sting proves that he is one of the greatest living musicians." -- Die Welt (Berlin)

"The real stars of the show were the arrangements: classical twists on classic hits that make Symphonicity a must-see." -- Globe and Mail (Toronto)

"This is one of the must-see concerts of the year." -- The New York Post

When Sting originally announced that he was going to tour with a full fifty piece orchestra and perform his best known songs I was a little sceptical. How could that possibly work? Well, five months in, it is apparent just how wrong I was to harbour any doubts. The 'Symphonicity' shows have been spectacular successes since the tour launched in Vancouver earlier this year and have since garnered glowing accolades in the media. When I attended several of the shows, I was totally blown away by the whole experience and quickly realised how short-sighted my initial scepticism had been.

'Live in Berlin' is produced by Jim Gable and Ann Kim who have been responsible for previous Sting releases such as 'A Winter's Night... Live from Durham Cathedral', 'The Journey and the Labyrinth', 'Inside The Songs of Sacred Love', and '...All This Time' as well as 'The Police: Certifiable'. They have successfully captured the feel of the 'Symphonicity' concerts and while there are obvious limitations to the presentation of a show of this size given the sheer number of musicians on stage, the clever use of three large light boxes above the stage - which occasionally provide live and video footage - light the show superbly and provide subtle, tasteful lighting throughout the concert. The DVD also includes Sting's spoken introductions to several songs, where he explains the inspiration behind a song or offers some other biographical background, and while this would be distracting in a faster paced rock concert, here it works well.

The highlights are numerous. Take for example, the unmistakable sound of special guest Branford Marsalis who adds his saxophone to 'Englishman in New York', 'Mad About You' and 'Desert Rose'.

I started watching this DVD with some skepticism, but I was won over as the concert progressed. By the end I was enthusiastic, and felt it was probably some of Sting's best live work so far.

The first five songs on the DVD appeared to confirm my worst fears. Slow, trudging, seemingly sophisticated but really just tame and domesticated bilge -- that's what I thought. A sexagenarian standing in front of an orchestra delivering smooth and timid rehashings of his old hits. Yawn.

Sting started to win me over with "Russians" -- the only song with the writing credit "Sting and Sergei Prokofiev". The orchestra didn't follow Prokofiev all that closely, but it was the first time in the show that I sat up and thought they were finally doing something interesting with the orchestra.

From there on, the concert seemed to build from strength to strength. The country tunes "I Hung My Head" and "The Cowboy Song" -- the latter complete with line dancing band members -- were lively and engaging. "Whenever I Say Your Name" starts with a terrific violin solo. I started appreciating the rich and sophisticated orchestrations, the nuanced percussion, and the interplay between orchestra and Sting's normal band members.

"Moon Over Bourbon Street" was a real highlight. It received a quirky orchestral workover in a style somewhere between Kurt Weill and Stravinsky -- with Sting taking, to my knowledge, his first theremin solo on stage. There were several creative and original moments like this that made me smile in appreciation and realize that Sting's still got it. Musically speaking, that is -- not just with his tanned, statuesque physique, which I'm sure we are all happy to grant him.

Sting's voice and performance is outstanding, heartfelt, incredibly beautiful. The creativity of how he managed to remake his songs with the multiple sounds behind him from the Royal Philharmonic is simply a work of art, a must have.

I do not think I would be wrong in stating that Sting's book of life as far as his career is concerned is condensed in this 2 hour concert. Yes, his entire career is encompassed in this concert as he performs along with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra all the classics from way back when he was part of The Police.

I became a fan of Police (Sting) when I first heard "Walking on the moon" in the late 70's, perhaps it had something to do with that unmistakable reggae beat which I always associated with Bob Marley who I happened to be familiar with at that time and was a fan of. With every album that Sting released I was a bigger fan than ever. If I look back over the years I had bought all his albums and used them all the time to evaluate the equipment that I was buying and upgrading as an audiophile. His music and compositions gave me an insight into the equipment under evaluation. I realized that his albums were almost done to perfection and sounded better and better whether it was a humble 25 watt Nad amplifier or the mighty Mark Levinson at 300 watts per channel, be it budget Paradigms or Reference Kef floor-standers, the sound always improved as the equipment in question was upgraded to a higher level. What it actually means is that his recordings were so refined and high resolution that the quality was revealed more and more with each successive upgrade of the audio system. I can hardly think of any other artist who had this kind of treatment given to each and every album they produced. Sting no doubt is a pillar of perfection as any artist can possibly be.

The concert on the DVD starts with "A thousand years".
