Timelapse creates a space where sounds of the past and present collide to form a unique musical landscape. Although the pieces were written, in some cases, centuries apart and in culturally disparate eras, it is striking how much these contrasting works inhabit such similar emotional territory. Intriguing pairings of works by Rameau and Radiohead’s Pyramid Song, Schubert, and The Smiths, Adés and Grieg, Satie and Reich, compliment each other beautifully and style have become irrelevant. Also available as a digital concert to watch. Click here to purchase.

‘Album of the Week’ on Classic FM and Scala Radio

Timelapse creates a space where sounds of the past and present collide to form a unique musical landscape. Although the pieces were written, in some cases, centuries apart and in culturally disparate eras, it is striking how much these contrasting works inhabit such similar emotional territory. Intriguing pairings of works by Rameau and Radiohead’s Pyramid Song; Schubert and The Smiths, Adés and Grieg, Satie and Reich, compliment each other beautifully and style have become irrelevant.

A well-executed concept album, is something of a history-bending mixtape that hops between the present day and the 17th century (with plenty of stops along the way)…The disc’s overarching theme is one of mood: the album is pervaded throughout by a searching melancholy and a dream-like quality…Timelapse comes to work a certain magic on the spirit and conjures a real sense of mystery and beauty…beautifully contemplative reworking of Bowie and Eno’s ‘We Could be Heroes’. Kate Wakeling, BBC Music Magazine

Conductor Bruce O’Neil steers the orchestra through this reperspectivising labyrinth with confidence. As beautifully recorded as it is played, this is a ravishing 66 minutes of music.” Colin Clarke, Classical Explorer

2 reviews for Timelapse: Orchestra of the Swan

  1. Orchestra of the Swan

    “Timelapse hangs together as an hour of music perfectly suited to either end of the day. Its sequence is an imaginative one, and it hangs together in the way Le Page indicates thanks to the quality of his arrangements. There are no syrupy cover versions here; instead a song like Bowie’s Heroes is reduced to its bare elements. In the orchestra’s hands it becomes a contemplation on the original, a free improvisation from the flickering string ensemble complemented by icy droplets of melody from the harp.” Ben Hogwood, Arcana FM

  2. Orchestra of the Swan

    “Beautifully contemplative reworking of Bowie and Eno’s ‘We Could be Heroes’” BBC Music Magazine
