Description: "David Gilmour Live in Gdansk" is the first solo live concert from Pink Floyd's singer/guitarist. This film captures the magic of his electrify8ng performance in front of 50,000 in the Gdansk shipyards, and it features the first ever recording of selected Pink Floyd classics performed with an orchestra. Gilmour and his six-piece band are accompanied for the only time on their "On an Island Tour" by an orchestra: the 40-strong string section of the Polish Baltic Philharmonic, conducted by Zbigniew Preisner. It is the first live recording with an orchestra of Pink Floyd's "High Hopes" and "A Great Day for Freedom." The two-hour concert, directed by Gavin Elder, portrays the drama of Gdansk, set against the urban landscape of the shipyard and crane-filled skyline. Hung above the stages, suspended on two giant cranes, are six, 16-ton screens, each on focused on a band member and lit in a kaleidoscope of color and lasers by lightmeister Marc Brickman.
