Following the release of their sublime album, Rain Before Seven…, Penguin Cafe have just dropped a new treat for us, in the shape of a single. Marking Penguin Cafe’s first-ever recording of Penguin Cafe Orchestra classic ‘Perpetuum Mobile’, the new single is a majestic orchestral rendition arranged by legendary British conductor and musical director Guy Protheroe and performed with The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Arthur Jeffes comments:
“This is one of my father’s most iconic pieces and it was a real joy to take it over to Prague and record with the Prague Philharmonic – doing it with a huge orchestra was something I’d always wanted to do. It gives it an even more cinematic feel and while it could never replace the original we’re overjoyed with how it came out!”
