NINJA TUNE XX: The Cinematic Orchestra (SOLD OUT)

The Royal Albert Hall

Ninja Tune are proud to present a highlight of their 20th anniversary celebrations by inviting back Jason Swinscoe’s The Cinematic Orchestra three years on from their last triumphant show at the Royal Albert Hall. But this being the 20th anniversary of Ninja Tune we have something extra special – the peerless Cinematic Orchestra, electronic music legend Amon Tobin and the prodigious Dorian Concept – all presenting a one-off orchestral performance with the London Metropolitan Orchestra arranged by composer Ilan Eshkeri.

The London Metropolitan Orchestra worked with The Cinematic Orchestra on the score for the movie “Crimson Wing” and performed with them at the Roundhouse for the films “Entr’acte” and “Manhatta”. This evolving collaboration will reach its apotheosis at the Royal Albert Hall, where
The Cinematic Orchestra and The London Metropolitan Orchestra, led by Ilan Eshkeri,will combine to offer reinterpretations of material from the sprawl of The Cinematic Orchestra’s catalogue.

In addition Amon Tobin has been working with Ilan Eshkeri to present a set of some of his classic material, recontextualised in an orchestral setting, a process that’s sure to yield revelatory results when performed by the LMO tonight.

Dorian Concept is one of the most exciting producer/musicians currently working in electronic music; his fusion of jazz and electronic music is as thrilling as it is unique. His set for this Royal Albert Hall show will feature an ensemble including members of The London Metropolitan Orchestra.

Conductor: Andy Brown • Leader: Jackie Shave • Introductions: Mary Anne Hobbs

Line-up:

  • The Cinematic Orchestra
