Eric Prydz Gets an Orchestral Rendition of 'Opus'

Although it may not seem intuitive, electronic music and classical orchestra have much more in common that you think. In full compositions, both have the power to experiment with our emotions through complex sounds, rhythms, and melodies.

This past August, Finland's Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra performed Swedish native Eric Prydz single "Opus" from his 2016 album of the same name. The performance was part of a special "Classical Trancelations" event which also included performances of other dance classics like Faithless' "Insomnia" and Darude's "Sandstorm".

Check out the performance below, and compare it with the original! Tell us which one you like better!
