If this Live Orchestra Playing "Opus" Doesn't Give You Chills, You Are Dead Inside

Eric Prydz' masterpiece receives a splendid symphonic reimagining

2016 has been the year of Eric Prydz, as his music has received acclaim from music aficionados of all walks of life. Most recently, for instance, Helsinki's Philharmonic Orchestra covered "Opus" as part of their Classical Trancelations in Concert event - and the result is breathtaking.

The above video puts to rest any speculation as to whether or not the musicality of Prydz' productions is on par with that of a symphony composer. The orchestral interpretation of "Opus" builds to an such an emotionally overwhelming crescendo that it evokes the same feelings as the very first time you listened to the track.

Also featured were Darude's "Sandstorm" and Faithless' "Insomnia;" considering that both are time-tested electronic music classics, "Opus" already has quite a vote of confidence in its favor on the part of Helsinki's Philharmonic Orchestra. As evidenced by the video above, the song is clearly deserving - cue it up and see for yourself, and then let us know what you think by visiting the comments section below.
