ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Schoenberg's Orchestre Surréal, a one-of-a-kind, eclectic, twenty-piece, hybrid orchestra that defies categorization. The group combines rock-n-roll classics with the classical masters as well as all sorts of world and ethnic music, jazz improvisation, opera, soulful singing and underscored spoken monologues. This melting pot of musical sounds creates an exhilarating experience that captures the imagination and interest of a very wide demographic.

For the past three years the orchestra has been performing in nightclubs in the Los Angeles and Santa Barbara areas (most notably The Knitting Factory, The Cinegrill, The Gig, Sixteen Fifty, and the Whiskey A-Go-Go), and has built a loyal following. The Orchestre Surréal has the distinction of being the largest group ever to perform live on KXLU Radio. The group recently did a run of sold-out performances at the David Henry Hwang Theater of the East West Players, in a theatrical production (a variation of their nightclub show) entitled, "Dismembering The Classics."

Elvis Schoenberg, AKA Ross Wright, has earned a Masters Of Music form California State University Los Angeles, a Bachelors from California State University Northridge, a Diploma from UCLA Film Scoring Program, Dick Grove School Of Music, and The Musicians Institute. A classically trained composer with a diverse musical background, he has worked as a composer, ghostwriter and orchestrator on over twenty feature films, and his concert music has been performed throughout the United States and internationally.

Elvis Schoenberg's Orchestre Surréal is a project Mr. Wright put together in 1997. His compositions and arrangements quickly got the attention of the LA music community, and after two only concerts the group was listed in Music Connection's top 100 unsigned artists. Now the Orchestre Surréal has become a prestigious group that many top professionals vie to perform with.

Graeme Sacks

Magnificent!
I'm so glad I was introduced to this album. The arrangements are so creative and original. Can't stop listening to this album

Marilyn Harris

FABULOUS!!!
This CD is ALMOST as much fun as seeing Elvis & Co. live! While the visual aspects of the show are missing, there's a lot more audio clarity in this recording than in most gig venues where I've heard them, and one can actually hear the excellent orchestrations, inner harmony lines and timbre of the various instruments. I love the varying selections, too - one never gets bored with the Orchestre Surreal!
