Overview

Former President of Poland Lech Walesa and Mayor of Gdansk Pawel Adamowicz invited David Gilmour and his band to perform this very special concert to mark the 26th Anniversary of the founding of Trade Union Solidarity. The concert, funded by the City of Gdansk and Solidarity, was titled “It Started in Gdansk – The Space Of Freedom” and was held on August 26, 2006, a National holiday for the Polish people commemorating the founding in 1980 of The Solidarity Trade Union. Nine years later The Solidarity Trade Union toppled the Communist Government, with its leader Lech Walesa elected President of a democratic Poland. The double live album David Gilmour Live In Gdansk, produced by David Gilmour and Phil Manzanera, features the Gdansk concert and demonstrates a musician and his band playing at the very peak of their musical brilliance. The six piece band is accompanied for the only time on the On An Island Tour by an orchestra: the 40-strong string section of the Baltic Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra conducted by Zbigniew Preisner, orchestral arranger on David Gilmour’s critically acclaimed solo album, On An Island. It is the first ever live recording with an orchestra of Pink Floyd’s "High Hopes" and "A Great Day For Freedom," the latter performed here as a one-off for this special Solidarity anniversary. This four-disc version, comprised of two CDs and two DVDs, boasts 114 minutes of the concert on video plus a 36-minute documentary. A second DVD includes 11 bonus tracks (three previously unreleased) and a 5.1 Surround Sound (audio only) version of the On an Island album.
