Aufgenommen im Sommer 2018 im Chateau du Fëy in Frankreich. Statt im klassischen Power Trio aufzutreten entschieden sich MAESTRO für eine Variante mit Synth, Drummaschine und Streichquartett, und glücklicherweise wurde der Gig für die nachwelt festgehalten.
“Last summer, Maestro were invited to the Chateau du Fëy in French Burgundy to perform live. Instead of going for their usual power trio formula, they dropped almost all their instruments arsenal, kept one synth, a minimal drum kit and invited a string quartet to create stripped down chamber orchestra versions of their songs. The result was beyond everyone's expectations. And luckily it was recorded. I always love hearing great bands demos and alternate takes (like The Beatles, Bowie...), when the things are still rough, stripped down. Then you can really hear the essence of a song. That's what's so beautiful with this record, Fred's intricate string arrangements cast a new light on Maestro's sophisticated compositions, Mark's lyrics and voice take you far away, their music shines like never before. One last thing, if they ever play in your town, do yourself a favor and go see them live.” - Joakim
