Pieces in a Modern Style is the sixth album by electronic instrumentalist William Orbit. It was released in 2000 by WEA and Warner Music UK in Europe and Maverick Records in the United States. Barber's Adagio for Strings was the first single from the album, however the version played on radio and television was a remix by Ferry Corsten. The album is a fusion of classical music, electronica, ambient music and chill out music. William Orbit. Pieces in a Modern Style. After years of making his own esoteric ambient albums and paying for them by doing dance remixes for pop acts, William Orbit hit the big time in 1998 by co-writing and producing Madonna's Ray of Light album. With his own debut solo album on Madonna's label, he returned to his esoteric pursuits, programming a variety of calm classical pieces into his computer and rearranging them to one extent or another.

The translations that work best are the more modern pieces. The chief fault with Pieces is that, at times, it veers dangerously close to Muzak. the more you listen to Pieces in a Modern Style, the more warmth and affection you hear. They're not meant for classical purists they're charming little curios for anyone who's interested in the process of reinvention - or in just chilling out


Recorded while he was a cult hero, before he became Uber producer for corporate bargain bin fodder, it’s a charming collection of ambient recreations of classical favourites.
It’s a little irreverent as well which is no bad thing if it’s an interpretation rather than a recitation.
Some pieces are obvious while some bare no relation really.
Compared to his later volume, it sounds fresh and exciting, rather than noodles which is what it becomes.
Very tasteless on the entire lenght. Boring, flat, no ideas at all. If one is after classical transcriptions on synthesizer: Isao Tomita 1974-1979 's works can't even be approached. Those are far the most exciting pieces man could have recorded. This one is one of the weakest I've ever heard. Cheap almost crappy new-age background thing...
for info, this album was actually orginally released in 1995 through N-GRAM recordings via WEA/Warner. (Cat no: WE833 0630 10722 2). It featured the following tracks..

As you can see it features two tracks 3 and 5 which are not on the 2000 release. I managed to buy it on the day of release as I'd been eagerly awaiting it but i believe it was withdrawn soon after due to copyright issues with these tracks and did not see the light of day again until this newer release.

Hope that's of interest :-)

in fact it gets a mention here

so i'm not sure why its not listed on the main list..guess its' the naming... oh well.


Equal parts beautiful and a welcome around the house and cheeky drek that should get one punched or thanked for owning. What's definetly drek is the stupid Adagio remix. As before, collect the originals if and where possible and compile accordingly. Some surprises will be found in these interpertations and the going back and forth. At worst you'll find some more people to get into musically.
My Australian release is as per the German one described above. The Ferry Corsten remix of Adagio for Strings received a reasonable amount of airplay on national TripleJ FM radio here at the time of its release. I personally think that mix is rather cheap & nasty - But I suppose that equates to being radio friendly.

As for the full length Album disc; Quite pleasant and dreamy in a fairly bleepy bloopy kind of way. I have a friend with an extensive collection of and was a staff member at a Classical recordings store. I lent her this album and she's collected for me the tracks in so much as could be found in close to their original, instrumental (or choral) arrangements. It's my intention to recompile Orbits collection in this form, and throw out the second disc with the Corsten remix. I think it wastes the 2c worth of plastic its pressed on.

nb. for those who don't know Barbers Adagio for strings, as it's become famous (for being in the Platoon soundtrack etc) was actually arranged originally for choir and is well worth checking out in that form. It's haunting beauty is only deepened.
