As part of our Festival of Science: Space, prog-rock legend and former Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman joins Classic Album Sundays’ Colleen Murphy to discuss his passion for space.
Classic Album Sundays is an immersive shared listening experience which allows fans to get as close as possible to the artist’s music – with focus on their influential albums and songs – through stories told by the artist and listening to music on a world-class audiophile hi-fi system.
Exploring Rick Wakeman’s friendships with astronauts, astrophysicists and cosmologists and how the cosmos inspired his music including his work with Yes, his solo outputs including No Earthly Connection and Out There and his contribution to the 1985 album Beyond the Planets – based upon Gustav Holst’s The Planets.
Tracks from these key works will be played on an audiophile hi-fi sound system courtesy of Grahams Hi-Fi, Rega, Naim and Bowers & Wilkins.
