5.0 out of 5 stars The King of Keyboards is back (with company)! September 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Keith is back with master guitarist Marc Bonilla (and the rest of the Keith Emerson Band) and the awesome conductor of the Munich Radio Orchestra... Terje Mikkelson - plus new material but mostly ELP (i.e., Keith Emerson) classics with a twist: full symphony orchestra PLUS keyboards, bass, lead guitar & drums. Tarkus has never sounded so great - the dynamics and orchestration are truly exceptional; likewise, the "Endless Enigma". Marc Bonilla absolutely shines with this new arrangement of "American Matador" and with two lovely new pieces ("Walking Distance" and "The Mourning Sun"). Keith has also included a very moving new piece - "After All Of This" - that, to my ears, sounds better arranged for orchestra than does the "bonus" solo piano arrangement; not at all to take away from the latter... it's truly lovely - it's just that to me, the symphonic version sounds far more complete and emotionally enriching. Emerson is much like Liszt - more appreciated in his time for his extraordinary performance skills than for his equally exquisite compositions and arrangements... a shame, as he will - eventually - be remembered as a truly great modern composer and arranger.

I recommend waiting for the price to come down a bit... as it will; import prices are always a bit inflated. However, I truly have no regrets - I absolutely adore this album. I'm waiting for the symphonic arrangement of Brain Salad Surgery - rock on Emo!

5.0 out of 5 stars You bet your Rundfunkorchester! November 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Keith Emerson has suprised the world again. One might have thought that his 2008 "Keith Emerson Band featuring Marc Bonilla," as good as it is, might have been his swan song but he has come roaring back. This cd is extremely well executed with the incredible input of both Mr. Bonilla and Terje Mikkelson, conductor of the Munchner Rundfunkorchester. The music includes a number of reworks of Keith's ELP favorites plus newer tracks by himself and Bonilla. I think it is fair to say that all of "The Three Fates" have truly blended their talents in this project. It starts out with an EMOtionally stirring version of "The Endless Enigma Suite" and builds right through to the final notes of "Fanfare for the Common Man." The ebb and flow of this cd will leave todays listeners wishing for more. One piece I would have liked to have been included is the "Trilogy" suite from the ELP album of the same name; primarily because it was very rarely performed live and I think it would be perfectly suited for the Rundfunkorchester. Although he has worked with orchestras previously, there is something refreshing and different in this work. It is not a patchwork of rock and orchestral music, rather it is Emerson and Bonilla allowing the mighty Munchner Rundfunkorchester to breath new life into their music, a true revelation. Mr. Emerson may have found a new lease on his musical career. Give it a listen and pray for a tour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three Fates-Bravo!!! November 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For the many of us waiting for new music from maestro Keith Emerson, this has been well worth the wait. The talent, the power, the orchestration and the arrangements in this collection of old and new music are top notch and emotionally moving.
These new versions of classic pieces have been brought to justice by only the one who created them to begin with. The addition of Marc Bonilla's incredible skills on guitar along with the superb collaboration of the orchestra bring a rich full sound and power that I have not experienced before. The arrangements, especially the Endless Enigma, are so beautiful I had to bring out a box of tissues. Bravo! Turn it up and feel what real music is all about!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Desert Island Album has Arrived!! November 17, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Three Fates Project It is noteworthy that the enthusiastic reviews preceding my own all contain exclamation marks in their titles, and I heartily agree with their sentiments. This is THE ALBUM that ELP devotees have waited decades for. Emerson's reputation as a composer is now validated; his vision and sensibility are brought into sharp focus, and I stand in awe of the masterpiece he and his collaborators have created. I agree that the poignant, beautifully expressed piano solo nested within The Endless Enigma is enough to elicit tears - it is beyond beautiful. Here we are welcomed into The Maestro's very soul. It is stirringly nostalgic; I am instantly transported back to my old college dorm room, yet can't help but savor the wisdom accrued over the many years since ELP's heyday.
It is amazing how well the album holds together, in spite of, or perhaps because of, its varied musical styles. It has moments of very high energy and complexity, yet retains a burnished, bittersweet ambiance that has touched me very deeply. In the many years since ELP faded away, I supplemented my album collection with Mahler's symphonies. They are now re-shelved. This album gives me everything I need, and yields fresh and compelling discoveries with each listen. Maestro Emerson has sent us one incredible holiday gift, and I am deeply thankful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked parts December 16, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Fans will gravitate to the reimagined ELP classics at the beginning, middle, and end of the album -- and with the help of various orchestrators, most of them are quite good. But don't overlook the three extremely fine pieces by KEB member and guitarist Marc Bonilla (or his fabulous playing). A new-to-me Emerson piece "After All of This" is moving and makes me want to hear more. And he takes a second shot at Ginastera with "Malambo." A fine and not entirely predictable album.
