A new recording of classic Beatles tracks, conducted by Carl Davis and played by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

A chance remark sparked off this CD. My old friend, Sandra Parr, Concerts Manager and backbone of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra said in passing, ‘You know we are always being asked to play Beatles, but we don’t have anything’. I replied, ‘I’ll give you something to play’. Indeed, the original recordings are still with us and I feel for a long time yet. But the melodies are very strong in themselves and if arranged sensitively would be a very pleasurable CD and fulfil a need. It would demonstrate the range of their talent from the early rock and roll influences to the quirky, with my own special preference for Paul McCartney’s soulful ballads. Carl Davis, March 2011
This album of The Beatles for Orchestra consists mainly of brand new orchestral arrangements of some of the most memorable Beatle compositions.
The Rhythm section was put down at Abbey Road using some of the finest session musicians in their field and with the Abbey Road Engineers. The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra was then recorded in Liverpool again using the Abbey Road mobile unit and engineers, finally the album was mixed at the Penthouse Suite at Abbey Road, to provide this unique recording of The Beatles for Orchestra.
