STUNNING COVER VERSIONS of Classic Progressive Rock songs as you’ve never heard them before…
This is the follow-up to Clive Mitten’s highly acclaimed first volume covering, in his own ‘cinematic orchestral’ style, some the music that inspired him in his earlier years, mostly dating from the 1970s. The double album includes some of the best-known artists and some of their best-loved songs, beautifully interpreted, in this the second volume in the series.
Clive studied piano and classical guitar at school. In 1978, at Reading University, he became a founding member of the progressive rock band, Twelfth Night, playing lead, classical & bass guitars and keyboards; releasing numerous albums, and touring extensively, playing venues such as the Reading Festival, Hammersmith Odeon, as well as the word-famous Marquee club.
Since reuniting Twelfth Night in 2007 Clive has returned to his classical world, adding orchestration to his knowledge of theory, and writing his first new music in 30 years. This led, in 2021, to the critically acclaimed ‘Suite Cryptique’ album, his fully orchestral re-composition of the music of Twelfth Night. This was followed by ‘Tales from a Misspent Youth - Volume I’ , and then in 2022 by his fully classical album ‘Transcriptions’.
