Pet Shop Boys - The Most Incredible Thing

Pet Shop Boys' Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe release the music for their first ever full-length ballet, The Most Incredible Thing, on March 22nd through Astralwerks Records. Tennant and Lowe composed most of Act One in the autumn of 2008 and the rest of the score in 2010. The music is a combination of electronics and orchestra. They approached the young German musician Sven Helbig to create the orchestrations, and at the end of 2010 they were recorded in Poland with the Wrocław Score Orchestra conducted by Dominic Wheeler. The score comes on the heels of the group's Grammy nominated album Yes.
