Recent UK shows such as Manchester's Hacienda Classical and Liverpool's Cream Classics have shown us that such different genres like this can be brought together by talented musicians, so the concept of the most talented electronic musicians out there (such as Mr Scruff and Martin Buttrich) remixing some of the world's greatest classical composers (such as Beethoven and Bach) is incredibly exciting.
