Στο πλαίσιο ενός ένα tour-de-force δεξιοτεχνίας / μουσικότητας που για μένα αποτελεί τον ορισμό του “απίστευτου”, οι Emerson, Lake and Palmer […March born drummer] διασκευάζουν το τελευταίο μέρος από το Κονσέρτο για Πιάνο No 1 του Alberto Ginastera [1916 – 1983]. Το κομμάτι έχει αποδοθεί live στη διάρκεια της ηχογράφησης του Brain Salad Surgery. Το εξώφυλλο του άλμπουμ είναι φιλοτεχνημένο από τον H.R. Giger – σχεδιαστή, αργότερα, του πρωτότυπου για το Alien [1979].
Ο Αργεντινός συνθέτης …εξήρε την διασκευή.

With a display of virtuosity/musicality which to me is the definition of “unbelievable”, Emerson, Lake and Palmer […March born drummer] cover the last part from Piano Concerto No 1 by Alberto Ginastera [1916 – 1983]. The track has been performed live in the studio during the recordings for Brain Salad Surgery. The album’s cover was illustrated by H.R. Giger – designer, some years later, of alien figure’s prototype for Alien [1979].
The Argentine composer …praised the arrangement.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!
