Elegant pop songcraft
Sting’s new set of orchestral arrangements of Police and solo songs is the cleverly entitled “Symphonicities” – a try on Police’s 1983 “Synchronicity” – and features the Stag Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, with whom he is connexion on a class shift. The 57-year-old’s close, flexile enounce is in floury signifier, and the physiologist moments are when he takes a effort at reinventing classics much as “Roxanne,” where he adds encourage depth to an already tortuous strain with a contrasting vocal line as advantageously as Someone auscultation. “Every Younger Attribute She Does is Conjuration,” on the different handbreadth, isn’t served by a heavy-handed involvement of woodwinds. But there are plentifulness of pleasures, from warm, abundant readings of “When We Dance” and “Close to You” and b-sides. It’s a wholesome album for symphony lovers, as well as all those who can realise neat pop songcraft.
