Long respected for intriguing instrumentation and a contemporary approach to traditional Celtic music, CRAICMORE’s orchestral arrangements transcend cultural boundaries.
Celtic music, primarily an oral and auditory tradition, here is interlaced with classical music idioms in a fresh way. CRAICMORE engaged Luke Hannington to create orchestrations for the haunting, memorable Celtic tunes that have been handed down for centuries.
“These orchestrations are lean and muscular. I’ve shied away from overly lush arrangements and chosen to compliment the more aggressive, up-tempo aspects of CRAICMORE ‘s energetic repertoire choices,” says Hannington.
