Tony Banks - Six Pieces for Orchestra
Rock keyboardist and composer Tony Banks was a co-founder of Genesis, and his early love of classical music helped shape that band's unique sound. On his new release, Banks serves up music that ranges from introspective to heroic,comprising, as he describes it, "a story without words." Paul Englishby leads the City of Prague Philharmonic in this Naxos recording.
