Editorial Reviews

Lunasa With The RTE Concert Orchestra is a glittering collection of tunes sparked from a brilliant union of two of Ireland's brightest musical stars - a remarkable traditional Irish music band and Ireland's treasured national orchestra. Their first joint effort was a sold-out performance at Dublin's National Concert Hall on June 19, 2012 that was broadcast on Ireland's RTE Radio 1, followed later in the year by the recording of the album. The RTE Concert Orchestra, whose credits include projects with talents as diverse as Luciano Pavarotti and Jon Lord of Deep Purple and Ireland's Sinead O'Connor and Imelda May, is conducted by David Brophy. Film footage of the concert is included on the CD.

I love Lunasa and this recording is very good but I believe that the band is much more comfortable playing off each other rather than with an orchestra. For this band, that is how it should be.

Lunasa never disappoints...and this CD is no exception. All familiar music but with a nice little twist of the orchestra with it. The orchestra doesn't over power the music but adds to it beautifully. Highly recommend to anyone who loves Lunasa as I do!

Personally, this is the Best CD of 2013. (Of course, there's sooo many to choose from) but to me, this project stands out above all others.
Other artists have sought to blend Celtic trad with symphonic music. But this- this is the GREATEST for several reasons. The first, of course, is simply the brilliance of the band members. Right down the line, these are cats at the very tip top of uppermost ranks of players. Genuine virtuosos.
Another is the BRILLIANT job that Niall Vallely did in writing the orchestrations. He takes the very soul and essence of these Irish, American, Galician, and Breton folk tunes and makes them SING with the RTE symphony.

And one must acknowledge the WONDERFUL contribution of conductor David Brophy and the RTE Orchestra. He and his colleagues do a GREAT job of merging with the talent of Lunasa. One must remember that the cats in the band range from having heavy music backgrounds to guys who are exclusively from the old time music tradition where tunes are passed down through the generations.

And, who, uh, can't read a NOTE of written music... but NO MATTER!

There are so many highlights. The video track on the CD of the "Morning Nightcap" set is great. The "Merry Sisters" set is wonderful. But the suite of "An Buchillian Ban" and "Scully's' is simply incredible. Staggeringly great. First comes Cillian Valley (or "that hippie with the plumbing in his lap") who just KILLS it on the Uilleann pipes and then Kevin Crawford (flute, whistles and bohdran) leads the band and orchestra thru a wild and ROARING set of dance tunes.

I also love the tracks like "The Last Pint" where Kevin, Cillian and Dr. Seán Smyth play seductive whistle trios with PERFECT harmonies. Some bands have a great whistle player, a few might have two...

An amazing CD. As if Lunasa could sound any better ... but they do on this one. I have all of their music and was initially hesitant to buy another with tracks that I've already got. The orchestra backing gives such a depth and richness - I've been playing this one non-stop all week.
Do yourself a favour ...
