Finally had a chance to sit down and listen to this, and sad to say, I find it a big disappointment. Everything works perfectly well, but for the most part, the songs sound much like the originals, just with synths replaced by strings, and the piano replaced by... well, actually by identical piano lines. Vienna even has the same electronic drums, and the middle eight of Lament has the marimba-synth replaced by, surprise, an actual marimba. It all seems rather pointless. Drums, guitars and electronics should have been banned altogether, and anything that sounded like the original version should have been done differently.
It's a perfectly acceptable listen, but if you're going to do an orchestral album of old songs, use the orchestra creatively to make them sound different.
Sorry to be negative, but I don't think this adds anything to the songs.
