Tony Banks: Six - Pieces for Orchestra (Naxos: 8.572986)



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Tony Banks, founder member of rock band Genesis, has already written a much admired orchestral work called Seven (8.557466), in which he was praised for his 'genuine melodic gift' (Gramophone). His new work consists of six evocative songs without words which may arouse in the listener ideas of seduction, journeys, heroes, quests, decisions and goals. Two of the pieces feature solo instruments alto saxophone on Siren and violin on Blade played here by elite soloists, which mesh into Banks's orchestral tapestry with bewitching effect. The remaining pieces reveal his outstanding lyrical gifts and total command of musical narrative.

Tony Banks has a big following for his solo work outside the group. His classical compositions have been admired for their lyricism and melodic qualities, with some critics noting an affinity with the string works of Vaughan Williams.

Throughout 2009 Charlie Siem's reputation as one of the brightest new classical artists grew with prestigious concerts in Paris, London, Oslo, Bergen and Basel. He has since enjoyed a very successful career, appearing with major orchestras and at festivals around the world. Martin Robertson began his solo career in 1986, and has since performed as a soloist with the Berlin, Los Angeles and London Philharmonic Orchestras, BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Ensemble Intercontemporain.

Listen to an exclusive Naxos' Podcast with Tony Banks on his new recording 'Six - Pieces for Orchestra'.
