“Game of Thrones” theme gets flashmob treatment

Posted on: April 11, 2014

Wednesday’s (4/2) Telegraph (London, U.K.) includes an unsigned article about a flashmob video recently made by a Spanish youth orchestra. “Flash mobs, those irritating ‘spontaneous’ gatherings that often involve a mobile phone company making everybody miss a train by turning the station platform into an amateur version of Glee, are usually best avoided. But this one is different—especially for anybody who cannot wait for season four of Game of Thrones to begin. In the slow-building video … the Youth Orchestra from the Collegium Musicum La Rioja, Spain, play the stirring theme to the HBO series as they slowly gather in the town square of Logroño. Many of the players look too young to be watching” that particular HBO show, “but the heart-quickening strings of Ramin Djawadi’s composition can cut through any age barrier.”
