While Icelandic artist Emiliana Torrini needs no introduction, The Colorist Orchestra is a Belgian ensemble founded by Aarich Jespers and Kobe Proesmans in 2013. They re-envision the repertoires of established musicians from across genres using traditional classical instruments and arrangements, along with a variety of their own musical inventions. Watch a video about the collaboration above.
Emiliana Torrini and The Colorist have announced a tour for 2017, of which Torrini says: "Come and join us for a beautiful evening of painting with music. After February I am taking four or five months leave from playing live.... I have a baby in the belly... and so The Colorist Orchestra and I will take a break from playing until I am set to go again".
