Lady and Bird – La Ballade of Lady and Bird (live) (2009)


Karen Ann and Bardi return with La Ballade of Lady and Bird (EMI France), a collection of live performance recorded last year with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra. Combining new songs, tracks from the debut and versions taken from the duo’s individual works, La Ballade is grand in scope and lushly orchestrated but also a surprisingly intimate affair. “Generally we think “live albums” are boring and give you a bad version of the originals,” say L+B. “With this record we are really adding to the originals and giving something more. Here we had over 90 musicians on stage so we have the power to keep it epic and sometimes add more to the songs than on the originals.”
