When you hear the word orchestra, one would think there is a full ensemble of musical performers dressed in formal attire playing from eloquently scored pieces. This is not the case as NOE has taken "orchestra" to a new level with their latest disc "Nostra Orchestra Estemporanea." To truly appreciate this CD you must listen with an open mind and soul as it is creatively embedded with Avant Garde/free improvisational selections. Disregarding the rigid genres and forms of traditional music, "Prima Estemporanea Per Grande Orchestra" captures tones from the string section to winds with a sense of harmonious sync. Exploring unexpected sound textures, "Estemporanea Per Voce E Strumenti" displays modernism with new techniques and possibilities of the voice and instruments which has a cohesive appeal. The selections on this disc are experimental and innovating. Because there are no rules on this CD, the end result will capture your interest and attention. Don't be afraid to hear the sounds of "Nostra Orchestra Estemporanea" where instruments push the boundaries of normality to transcend into interesting originality.
