After the double sold out in Rome on 5 and 6 November 2010 and the great success of national and international critics, arrives in stores the awaited box set of Prog Exhibition (on the label Immaginifica by Aereostella/Edel): nine hours of live music (seven Cds and four Dvds), a booklet full of exclusive photos to relive the event that celebrated forty years of imaginative music with the great sacred monsters, Italian and international progressive rock.
For the first time in the history of music, the protagonists of the prog of yesterday, today and tomorrow have performed on the same stage in the name of the meeting of sound styles and cultures: PFM – Premiata Forneria Marconi, the most famous Italian rock band in the world (the only one to have climbed the Billboard chart) shares the scene with Ian Anderson, legendary leader of Jethro Tull; Aldo Tagliapietra, Tony Pagliuca and Tolo Marton, together live for the first time in thirty-five years, with the participation of violinist David Cross of King Crimson; Nuova Raccomandata con Ricevuta di Ritorno con l’ospite Thijs Van Leer (flautista dei Focus); and again Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso, one of the most significant examples of musical contamination; The Trip, on their debut on stage after the reunion announced, after decades of separation; the Osanna, loaded with their Neapolitan warmth, with Gianni Leone (histrionic leader of the Bronze Ballet) and David Jackson (saxophonist of Van Der Graaf Generator).
To this prestigious line up we add new names such as Synesthesia, Wax Mask, Periphery of the World and Abash to give voice to the sound of today.
Fourty years after the birth of progressive rock, the Prog Exhibition box set is a collector’s item for all lovers of imaginary music, an unmissable opportunity to relive not just a concert, but an unforgettable live music exhibition that can enter the history of music by right.
