Weaving together treatments of five songs from Brian Eno's classic 70s recordings, Timo Andres’s Paraphrase is performed by the Britten Sinfonia, together with Steve Reich’s recent instrumental reimagining of two Radiohead songs – ‘Jigsaw Falling into Place’ and ‘Everything in Its Right Place’.  

Leading American jazz pianist Brad Mehldau performs his sublime Variations on a Melancholy Theme – which he says sounds ‘as if Brahms woke up one day and had the blues’ – while Kronos Quartet pays tribute to one of minimalism’s founding fathers, Terry Riley.

'A gentle gondola ride through five lovely Eno songs ... a clever, lovingly orchestrated homage in the time-honored spirit of Franz Liszt.' NPR on Timo Andres's Paraphrase
