Rick Wakeman's debut album for Sony Classical, Piano Odyssey contains tracks chosen, orchestrated and arranged by Wakeman himself.
This eagerly-anticipated follow-up to the hugely successful Piano Portraits includes works by Yes, The Beatles, Queen, Liszt, Handel and David Bowie as well as repertoire from The Six Wives of Henry VIII and new solo compositions.
Rick Wakeman comments, “All of the music chosen contains the most beautiful melodies and this is the key for being able to present fresh arrangements which can only enhance the reputation of the original. Every track has a meaning and is tailor-made for the piano. It was pure joy to make this album.”
