Peter Gabriel Reinvents His Music For Orchestra

Peter Gabriel Reinvents His Music For Orchestra It's back into our World Cafe archives once again today as 80s Week continues with a 2011 interview with the great Peter Gabriel. Peter Gabriel was a founding member of Genesis before starting on one of the most inventive solo careers ever for a pop musician. His solo work continued through the 80's and our interview looks back on the songs from that period as they were re-recorded for the orchestral album New Blood. Peter Gabriel is a musical Renaissance man -- musician, songwriter, Real World record label owner, Real World studio owner, WOMAD founder, Amnesty International ambassador, 3D enthusiast and much more. We’ll touch on much of that in this conversation from the archive for 80s Week on the World Cafe. Session Setlist
