Thomas Bergersen’s follow up album to his extremely successful debut album “Illusions”, released in 2011. “Sun” took him almost 4 years to complete and features his best, most heartfelt, virtuosic and powerful music to date. It features a giant orchestra (over 200 musicians contributed), choir, bulgarian choir, famous world class instrumentalists and a wide range of styles, emotions and colors. Recorded around the world, with contributing artists from all over the world including Bulgaria, Romania, Norway, USA, Brazil, Mexico, Germany and Italy. “Sun” is without doubt Thomas Bergersen’s finest work to date, and the natural continuation of “Illusions”. The Orchestra, world famous “Capellen Orchestra” was recorded in Czech Republic and conducted by Maestro Petr Pololanik. Using dynamic overdubbing (shuffling players around between each take) we achieved an absolutely massive string orchestra sound (168 players in total, with 20 all-stars first chair violinists), and a humongeous brass ensemble sets the tone of the album. Tracks such as “Final Frontier” feature 18 French Horns in unison!
