Nickelback, the Canadian rock band that everyone loves to hate, is being inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at this year’s Juno Awards.
In honour, Sonus Ensemble and directed by Canadian composer and producer Kevin Fox have released a classical version of the band’s hit song “Photograph”.
What makes it good?
The results are surprisingly effective. Despite sounding nothing like a rock song, the original tune is still recognizable beneath the fanfare.
The ensemble features an English horn, clarinet, violin, flute, harp, timpani and eight other instruments that meld together to create a lush and layered journey.
What they’re saying
The arrangement was performed by the Sonus Ensemble and directed by Canadian composer and producer Kevin Fox. Fox said that arranging a rock song for a classical ensemble introduces a new set of emotions, and this version of “Photograph” is a sweeping and sentimental rendition that takes the original song to new emotional heights.
There is no such thing as bad publicity…
The story about how Nickelback became the most hated band in the world is only now just being understood.
