11 Episodios Sinfónicos (11 Symphonic Episodes) is a live album recorded by Gustavo Cerati at the Teatro Avenida of Buenos Aires on August 2000. Following the footsteps of other important artists, Cerati rearranged eleven tracks from his former band Soda Stereo as well as singles from his solo albums into symphonic melodies. The concert consisted of him singing while the orchestra played along while being directed by Alejandro Terán. A DVD was also released which featured four additional songs not included in the CD, as well as behind-the-scenes extras and a documentary.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Drago Bonacich awarded the album 4 stars stating "The album brings a collection of greatest hits with well-crafted arrangements and sophisticated sounds, mostly delivered by violins and violoncellos. In addition, Cerati's seductive voice allows listeners to establish a captivating connection between rock en español and classical music.".[1]
