“Performing ‘Tarkus’ at the Keith Emerson Tribute event was incredibly meaningful. It was truly an amazing night. Having the opportunity to pay my respects to the man who changed my life by playing my favourite piece of music with incredible musicians, made it a memory that will never be forgotten. I’m so thrilled that this incredible evening of music is now going to be shared with the world.” – Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater)
“It’s difficult to express what an honour it was to participate in this tribute to Keith. Surrounded by friends and heroes, it was such a privilege to be part of a group of musicians who were as affected by Keith’s life, music and friendships I was. Not surprisingly there’s a lot of us. To play Hammond on The Barbarian, the first song I ever saw him play live, is a cherished memory I’ll never forget. Many thanks to Marc and Mari for keeping this idea and dream alive.” – Steve Porcaro (Toto)

earMUSIC, the Hamburg based international rock label part of Edel Group, is proud to announceThree Fates, the most important record from Keith Emerson since his Emerson, Lake & Palmer days. Three Fates is the unique meeting of a British progressive rock legend, a guitar hero from Los Angeles and a Norwegian classical music conductor in the studio with the prestigious Münchner Rundfunkorchester . It features the best of ELP (Tarkus and Fanfare For The Common Man Pt. 1&2 ), solo songs and brand new compositions – all in new orchestral arrangements.Three Fates will be released on 19th November 2012.
Three Fates is the symphonic truth about the composer Keith Emerson, and a realization of the potential in his music. Finally, he is realizing the project of his dreams in a close collaboration with the Norwegian conductor Terje Mikkelsen and American guitarist Marc Bonilla. Great works can be heard with a four-piece band and a full symphony orchestra for the very first time. Guitar phenomenon Marc Bonilla leads the brilliant band and maestro Terje Mikkelsen really fires up the Münchner Rundfunkorchester in these luscious orchestrations. What an impressive collaboration!
Tarkus – Concertante is no doubt the main work on this release, a 20 minutes epic. The Endless Enigma Suite in symphonic colours is of course also included, plus a new moving piece called After All Of This. Marc Bonilla also contributes three attractive pieces on this recording, in addition to two works with the unmistakable Emerson twist from his biggest source of inspiration: Aaron Copland and Alberto Ginastera.
Three Fates is about much more than simply music. It’s about making Emerson’s music resound in a symphonic scale. Conductor Terje Mikkelsen has the rock-and-roll approach needed, as well as total control over the symphony orchestra in break-neck ensemble with the Keith Emerson Band. In many ways, Three Fates completes the circle: Emerson brought classics into rock – now it’s Emerson’s own music being performed by a classical orchestra.
Keith Emerson says: “Although I have been involved with orchestras and also jazz, blues and rock since the sixties, without doubt I consider this to be the most important album since the ELP days.”
