Recorded September 21 at the O2 Arena, Live in Berlin was directed and produced by the Emmy-award winning team, Jim Gable and Ann Kim of Graying & Balding, Inc., in association with Universal Music Classical Management & Productions and Executive Produced by Chris Roberts and Sting's long-time manager, Kathryn Schenker, with music produced by Rob Mathes and Sting and mixed in stereo and 5.1 by Elliot Scheiner and Thom Cadley.
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:
"The real stars of the show were the arrangements: classical twists on classic hits that make Symphonicity a must-see." - Globe and Mail (Toronto)
"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)
"This is one of the must-see concerts of the year." - The New York Post
The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra has previously performed with internationally renowned artists ranging from opera luminaries Andrea Bocelli, Bryn Terfel, Renée Fleming, Kiri Te Kanawa, and the late Luciano Pavarotti to such popular cultural icons as Burt Bacharach, George Benson, Michel Legrand, Diana Krall, Tina Turner, and Randy Newman. The 45-piece orchestra are featured throughout the Symphonicity world tour.
Sting is also joined by a group of accomplished musicians comprised of Dominic Miller (Sting's longtime guitarist), Rhani Krija (Sting's longtime multi-genre percussionist), David Cossin (a multi-percussion specialist in new and experimental music and featured member of the Bang on a Can All-Stars), Jo Lawry (vocalist) and Ira Coleman (bassist).

I rarely write reviews but felt compelled to have to write this. The concert was very good but the recording, albeit being live, was fair at best in its placement and focus. Read morePublished 1 month ago by RudyQ3
