New Renaissance Live DVD released

The band Renaissance, led by founding members guitarist Michael Dunford and vocalist Annie Haslam, have released a DVD/2CD package from their 2011 tour of the eastern US. The recording features the classic albums "Turn of the Cards" and "Scheherezade and Other Stories" in their entirety, with over 2 hours of music. It also features an interview with Dunford and Haslam.

In the 70s, the band recorded and performed with full orchestra (arranged/orchestrated by Dunford), but their performances were never captured professionally on film. This performance features a 6-pience band, but thanks to modern electronic keyboards they're able to recreate many of the lush orchestrations of the original works.
