Ensemble Planeta

Post by Nonomino on 2011-05-05, 08:50

Ensemble Planeta (アンサンブル・プラネタ, Ensembure Puraneta?) is a Japanese all female a cappella group. Known for their performance of the works of Bach, Chopin, Schubert and other classical composers and traditional European folk music. The group was formed by Nahoko Kakiage, the recognized creator of classical crossover style of music in Japan.
Source : Wikipedia

The first song of them I heard was their cover of Polovtsian Dances that I find beautiful. adore I am usually not too fond of a cappella songs.
I came across this song by luck, while I was watching videos about bioluminescent creatures.



I was really surprised to learn the group was formed by Nahoko Kakiage, I like her a lot. But I was surprised that they were japanese in the first place. XD Everytime I come across a song I love and I don't know who did it at first, I always find out it is a japanese group/singer.

Some other songs of them I like:
Spoiler:

Their version of Scarborouh Fair... there is something heavenly yet haunting about it.


I have always loved Fauré's Pavane, I'm glad they did a cover.

Oh. my. God. Polovtsian Dances is very beautiful! I like to hear a cappella songs as they sound strong without music background. It really shows the strength of the singers, how professional they are. Thank you very much for sharing this!

Any download links for their albums or works, maybe? big smile
