This extraordinary performance was a first for Paul, performing with a full orchestra, and saw a quintessential selection of his vast catalogue exquisitely reworked and updated into 75 minutes of breath-taking music that was broadcast across the BBC.

Alongside the orchestra, Paul was also accompanied by long-term collaborator and guitarist Steve Cradock. This eclectic assortment of compositions from Paul’s illustrious career, invigorated by Jules Bickley’s sumptuous arrangements made for a visual and aural delight.

As a co-production with the BBC, the show was performed in the grand setting of London’s Barbican on May 15th and originally went out live online, later to be broadcast in full on Radio 2 on 13th June, 6Music on the 16th June and then on 19th June on BBC2.

Jules Buckley, is an esteemed conductor, composer and arranger. He is Creative Artist in Residence with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and has previously collaborated with the likes of Dizzee Rascal, Massive Attack and John Cale, re-creating their music for classical instruments. As co-founder of the Heritage Orchestra, Jules was also involved in Pete Tong’s No 1 house/classical crossover album “Classic House”.
