“CRANBERRY SOURCE” – variations for chamber orchestra & rock band

Cranberry Source, a set of variations for chamber orchestra & rock band, celebrates the 45th anniversary of the Beatles‘ 1967 landmark 45 RPM single “Strawberry Fields Forever.”

This project imagines a set of interconnected musical miniatures as heard through the original’s unique instrumentation, musical forces that combined successfully, and arguably for the first time, the fields of popular, classical, and world music.

That instrumentation, as orchestrated by Beatles’ producer George Martin for the original recording, consists of: 4 trumpets, 2 electric guitars, swarmandel (an Indian zither), piano, mellotron (flutes), timpani, guiro, maracas, tambourine, 3 celli, electric bass guitar, drum kit, and of course, vocals.
