The Vitosha Philharmonic Orchestra, making its home in Sofia, is a live performing and recording orchestra created by bringing together some of the world’s most finest and experienced musicians.
Established in 2013, The Orchestra was brought to life to become prolific, as it is diverse, in any live or recording production, ranging from productions in the purist and neo classical through to full philharmonic sound in a wide spectrum of modern contemporary genres.
Musicians that make up the Orchestra membership have been specifically selected for their experience, diversity and ability in both live and recording productions to ensure that any production is delivered at the highest standard.
The experience of the Orchestra members allows the flexibility, to perform or record, from a quartet to the full width of its 110 members as a philharmonic orchestra.
IN THE CLOUD (Madison Gate, out now) is a heady and energetic yet distorted vision for a science fiction thriller exploring the worlds of VR as memories, as composed by John Matthias and Jay Auborn with the help of Bristol’s chamber choir and the Vitosha Philharmonic Orchestra in Bulgaria. In The Cloud has a complex and fractured sound, flirting with gorgeous string melodies and piano and juxtaposing them with harsher electronic beats, including some thumping clubland pieces. Conceptually it wouldn’t be the same without some portentousness, which is underlaid by the haunting choir whose fusion with the crackling percussion is surprisingly wonderful.
