What if classical music had a rebirth?

Rebirth. This is the name of the spot created by the Hamburg based agency Kolle Rebbe for the launch of the new Sven Helbig album, “Pocket Symphonies”. Helbig, the founder of the Dresden Symphonic Orchestra– the first symphonic orchestra to play only contemporary music–has since become composer, producer, and arranger, mixing electronic and orchestral music, working with the Pet Shop Boys and Snoop Dogg (among other musicians).  In “Pocket Symphonies”, Helbig wanted to create short format symphonies (3 to 4 minutes in length) inspired by music from films– that would allow listeners daily, rapid experiences with the music. The album is available through Deutsche Grammophone.
