Ah, the very rare instrumental track on a Random Weekend. This one comes from Ben Folds’ last album, So There, which featured eight songs backed by an orchestra as well as Ben’s ‘Concerto for Piano and Orchestra’ in three movements.
I listened to the full concerto once, after first buying the album, and never again until today. I just don’t find myself reaching for classical or orchestral music, even if I really enjoy it. I find this sort of thing better in the background, whether it’s the background of a movie or everyday life.
Having just listened to ‘Movement 3’ all the way through for the second time, I will say it’s a fun listen. Sprightly and uplifting. I wouldn’t mind hearing Ben’s shot at a film score.
