Tarkus – concertante (LP 180g Black Vinyl Gatefold)
KEITH EMERSON: Tarkus (concertante) · Endless Enigma Suite part I and II · Abaddon's Bolero · MARC BONILLA: American Matador
An epic version of 'Tarkus' with Keith Emerson Band and symphony orchestra fills the entire side A of this collector’s item – a 180g vinyl in a beautiful gatefold cover.
Side B includes all-time hits 'Endless Enigma Suite, pt. 1 & 2', 'Abaddon's Bolero' and a captivating piece by guitarist Marc Bonilla entitled 'American Matador'. Maestro Terje Mikkelsen really fires up the Munich Radio Orchestra in luscious orchestrations.
Emerson's career, forming bands including The Nice and Emerson, Lake & Palmer, has established him as the Nr. 1 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.
