the music

The band that enchanted more than one generation of rock fans is revisited in this exceptional performance, tailor-made for Geneva by a sacred monster of the post-punk scene and performed by one of the most prestigious symphony orchestras in Switzerland.

Whole Lotta Love, Black Dog, Immigrant Song, Stairway to Heaven: for 50 years, the songs of Led Zeppelin have haunted the collective memory and inspired new generations of musicians. But how do they sing and inspire the brilliant Jaz Coleman, the British musician who wrote - notoriously on tour in the squats of Geneva - the most famous pages of post-punk in the 80s? For this reunion with the city where he wore out the strings of his early youth, the mythical founder of the no less mythical band Killing Joke has agreed to orchestrate for the OSR a revisit of which he alone has the secret! After the Doors and Pink Floyd, he is tackling Led Zeppelin in symphonic mode especially for Antigel, while inviting the OSR to sound rock'n'roll! Nearly 100 musicians, timeless melodies totally revisited: it is a totally new spirit of Led Zeppelin that will hover over Geneva during this first collaboration that is as unique as it is exceptional between the OSR and Antigel.
