Wakeman, Rick - Live In Lugano DVD (Mega Blowout Sale)
"Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce an official release of Rick Wakeman's live concert with the Orchestra Della Svizzera Italiana, in Lugano, Switzerland on the 2nd July 2009, where he performed strictly on the grand piano.
This event was the perfect setting for Wakeman s classically inspired compositions to be performed, including The King Arthur Suite, Journey to the Centre of the Earth and Catherine Howard . With an orchestra conducted and arranged by Guy Protheroe, the Lugano concert was a special concert by one of rock s greatest keyboard players."
"These are great orchestral versions of Rick Wakeman's pieces. Beautiful arrangements and some amazing playing by Rick, who just seems to get better with time. The highlight for me was the 20 minute "Journey To The Centre Of The Earth" adaptation, with the Grieg part and everything. There's a quite impressive version of Eleanor Rigby, and a great performance of Catherine Howard. One of Wakeman's must haves."-Alvaro Arango Vallejo
