The Classical Brit Awards 2008 (20080515)

Also fans of Josh' were in for a treat at this year's Classical Brit Awards. Josh performs two songs in his usual heartbreaking style. There is a close-up of Hayley Westenra after the first song. I'd say it's pretty obvious who she really wanted to sing her duet with. Tough break Jonathan... but don't take my word for it - check for yourselves.

Don't you think they made "February song" sound to "classical" with this orchestra and choir arrangement? It sounds fine, but, it's not the way I think the song was intended to sound at all.

I don't listen very much to Josh so I can't really say I remember how the original version sounds. I think this version was very good though. A lone piano and a slow, emotional ballad - that's my favourite combination... and Hayley liked it too! ;-)

The original is piano, and some strings... but this version at the Classical Brits features full orchestra and choir, which is a little bit too much for a piece like this. Oceano from Closer, or Mai, from Awake would have been better options to perform with such setting.

Ah, you're right! I didn't pay enough attention. Choirs, strings and large orchestras are such a common part of almost any music produced here since decades back I don't even notice it any longer. One gets so used to it that it's just "supposed" to be there or something sounds wrong. So I still like it this version.

I SEE!!

I like both arrangements of February Song.
Start with simple piano, then fill all the space with many kinds of sounds and instruments, and back to the simple piano at last.
