Keith Emerson Reveals ‘Symphonic Truth’
Keith Emerson has released a trailer for his upcoming symphonic album Three Fates. View it below.
The keyboard icon describes the collaboration with guitarist Marc Bonilla and conductor Terje Mikkelsen as the “project of his dreams.”
He says: “Although I have been involved with orchestras and also jazz, blues and rock since the sixties, without doubt I consider this to be the most important album since the ELP days.”
A press statement explains: “Three Fates is the symphonic truth about Emerson, which shows the potential in his music.
“Tarkus – Concertante is no doubt the main work on this release. The Endless Enigma Suite” in symphonic colours is also included, plus a new moving piece called After All Of This. Bonilla also contributes with three very attractive pieces in addition to two works with the unmistakable Emerson twist from his biggest source of inspiration: Aaron Copland and Alberto Ginastera.
“In many ways, Three Fates completes the circle: Emerson brought classics into rock – now it is Emerson’s own music being performed by a classical orchestra.”
