Description (English):
When Efterklang premiered their fourth album, Piramida, to a sold out audience at the Sydney Opera House with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra last year, it gave birth to The Piramida Concerts – a special presentation of the record that had been orchestrally arranged by fellow Dane Karsten Fundal and New York composer Missy Mazzoli. They have since performed it this way a further 14 times, including sold out performances at London’s Barbican with the Northern Sinfonia and New York’s Metropolitan Museum concert hall with The Wordless Music Orchestra.

Allowing the band to present a different side to the record, they decided to commit one of the performances to tape. Fittingly they chose the concert they played in their native Copenhagen to be the one. Recorded live at the city’s Royal Academy of Music Concert Hall in October 2012, the end result is this live album, The Piramida Concert.

Over the course of two sold-out nights, Efterklang – plus Peter Broderick, Katinka Fogh Vindelev and Budgie (Siouxsie and The Banshees) – teamed up with the 33-strong Copenhagen Phil orchestra and German conductor André de Ridder to perform Piramida in its entirety. The live performance also included ‘So’, a song written during recording sessions for the album, and ‘Vælv’, a classical piece commissioned by the band and composed by Karsten Fundal.
