    Sissel Kyrkjebø & Sort Sol In Concert

    This video is a great example of what can be done with rock when using orchestral instruments and synth samples. Sort Sol is a Danish pioneering rock band and Sissel Kyrkjebø is a crossover classical artist.

    Nice song, and a great sound.

    Still, I can't help but think that the orchestra was used as a high-end synth pad. I kept waiting for somebody (other than voice and lead guitar) play a melody or counter melody.

    Back in 1977, I saw Emerson, Lake and Palmer perform with an orchestra at the Long Beach Arena.

    Here they are in Montreal:

    Many of the recordings in Montreal go the other way: ELP plays rock adaptations of Mussorgsky, Copland and Prokofiev with orchestra.

    Prokofiev's Enemy God:

    Any other videos of rock bands with orchestras?

    I found this video by a female Turkish rock artist. It's pretty wild!
