Video 2×1: Classical Reworkings
Less popular than it was say, ahem, 30 or 40 years ago, this is the practice of taking a classical piece and making it prog-rock, jazz-fusion or even disco (you know the ones). These are two of my favourites. More info on the respective video pages.
Deodato: Also Sprach Zarathustra – from Persian Prophet to Nietzsche to Strauss to Kubrick to Deodato.
Emerson, Lake & Palmer – Fanfare for the Common Man – “Live” at the Olympic Stadium Montreal.
Fanfare for the Common Man is a musical work by American composer Aaron Copland. The piece was written in 1942 for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra under conductor Eugene Goossens. It was inspired in part by a famous speech made earlier in the same year where vice president Henry A. Wallace proclaimed the dawning of the “Century of the Common Man”.
