For this special 75th Anniversary Edition, Rachel Flowers and Marc Bonilla have recorded 'The Fugue' – the centerpiece of Keith Emerson's 'The Endless Enigma Suite' – presenting the world premiere recording of the complete piece!
Beyond the Stars is a project dedicated to the epic orchestral music of Keith Emerson – the composer – interpreted by Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Munich Radio Orchestra under the direction of Terje Mikkelsen.
Keyboard phenomenon Rachel Flowers features as piano soloist in a ferocious reading of ’Toccata con Fuoco’ from the Piano Concerto. A special contribution comes from Keith’s grandson – 13-year old Ethan Emerson – in the beautiful ’The Dreamer’ for piano and strings.
Recorded in Abbey Road Studio No. 1 and Munich Radio Hall – in eternal gratitude and respect for the musical legacy of Keith Emerson.
