Stefan Redtenbacher’s Funkestra with RNCM Session Orchestra
RNCM Theatre, 20 February 2016
The Austrian bassist and band took the stage at the start, then he conducted the RNCM Session Orchestra through a choice selection of his own compositions.
It was exhilarating, joyous music; music that put a titanic smile on your face and gave an uplift to your soul.
Wonderful musicianship all around, in fact, and – to have recourse to a simile I’ve been resisting, though it is meant as a positive compliment – the RNCM Session Orchestra were as well-rehearsed and adept as a troupe of Lipizzaners.
