‘Tarkus – concertante’ on 180g vinyl

An epic version of ‘Tarkus’ with Keith Emerson Band and symphony orchestra fills the entire A-side of this collector’s item – a 180g vinyl in a beautiful gatefold cover. All the tracks on this release are taken from the ‘Three Fates Project’ album, also on Simax Classics, where Emerson realizes his music in outstanding new versions with symphony orchestra.

The B-side includes all time hits ‘Endless Enigma Suite, pt. 1 & 2’, ‘Abaddon’s Bolero’ and a captivating piece by gitarist Marc Bonilla entiteled ‘American Matador’. Maestro Terje Mikkelsen really fires up the Munich Radio Orchestra in these luscious orchestrations.

Emerson’s career, forming bands including The Nice and Emerson, Lake & Palmer, has established him as the icon within prog rock. He brought composers like Mussorgsky, Sibelius, Bach, Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky directly into rock music, keeping the doors between the genres wide open.

Mastering done at Abbey Road studios.
