RUSSELL MORRIS The Real Thing Symphonic Concert 2CD (PLUS SIGNED FANCARD)
Relive the magic of Russell’s Live Symphonic Concert Event of the year!
On an evening in early July 2023, music enthusiasts gathered to witness a truly awe-inspiring performance by the legendary Australian singer-songwriter, Russell Morris. The audience was in for an extraordinary treat as Morris took the stage accompanied by the grand 50-piece Southern Cross Symphony, creating a musical experience that would be etched in their hearts forever.
From his chart-topping hits like The Real Thing to his soul-stirring ballads such as Sweet Sweet Love, Morris has left an indelible mark on the Australian music landscape. Now, backed by the grandeur of a 50-piece orchestra, he was ready to take his artistry to even greater heights.
The sheer magnitude of the orchestra (Conducted by Peter Morris) brought unparalleled grandeur to the performance. With virtuosic arrangements by David Hirschfelder, the strings swelled with passion, the brass section added depth and richness, and the percussion carried the rhythm with precision. Together, they formed a symphonic force that complemented Morris’ artistry, enveloping the audience in a sonic embrace that resonated deep within their souls.
