Inspired by a period of Beatlemania at home with his family, Violinist and Concert Master Guy Braunstein wove a dozen songs from the Beatles’ celebrated Abbey Road album into a concerto for violin and orchestra entitled Abbey Road Concerto.

The album is Exclusively Available in Stereo DSD 512, DSD 256, DSD 128 and DSD 64 at NativeDSD 

The concerto intersperses Braunstein’s own compositions of the Overture, Intermezzos, Cadenza and The End with his arrangements of John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison’s hit songs such as Come TogetherOh Darling, Here Comes The Sun and I Want You.

Conductor Alondra de la Parra also has a profound love for the Beatles and was therefore the natural choice to lead the Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège in this captivating and unique approach to the timeless and epochal music that the band recorded at Abbey Road Studios in 1969.

Accompanying Braunstein’s Abbey Road Concerto are Ralph Vaughan Williams’ beloved The Lark Ascending and Frederick Delius’ seldomly performed Violin Concerto.

Just like the album Abbey Road itself, the first-ever recordings of both of these works by Delius and Vaughan Williams were made at Abbey Road Studios in London.
