The Keith Emerson Band release the brand new live set “Moscow” on 7 March 2011 on 2CD and DVD formats [Cat Nos 0206400ERE and 0206401ERE respectively] via Edel’s international rock label, earMUSIC distributed in the UK & Republic of Ireland by Absolute via Universal. Simply the most important keyboard player of the ‘70s, a true progressive rock legend with Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Keith Emerson has been one of the most important figures to emerge from the thriving UK rock scene of the 1960’s and 70’s.
This show was recorded in 2010 in Moscow, Russia, at the Moscow Theatre – an explosive combination of the classic ELP sound and modern progressive hard rock and is presented for the first time in 5.1 Surround Sound. Several Emerson, Lake & Palmer classics, like “Karn Evil9” and ”Pictures At An Exhibition”, have been cleverly re-arranged with new guitar versions, adding entirely new elements to the already epic sound. Emerson’s keyboard is more flamboyant and explosive than ever.
Emerson is known for fusing rock ‘n‘ roll with a myriad of musical styles, such as classical, jazz and world music. The Keith Emerson Band fused the talents of Emerson and guitar wizard/vocalist, Marc Bonilla (Glenn Hughes, ELP, Toy Matinee), and yielded the 2008 release of the highly acclaimed debut album, “Keith Emerson Band featuring Marc Bonilla”. Besides Emerson and Bonilla, the band members include drummer Tony Pia (Edgar Winter, Brian Setzer, Doobie Brothers) and Travis Davis on bass and backing vocals.
This once-in-a-lifetime experience is now available on DVD and a 2CD set, featuring the well-known “Nutcracker Suite” from Tchaikovsky as well as “The Barbarian” from Bartok, transformed into a rock sensation on one of the most famous stages in Russia.
