Παράλλληλα με την “κυρίως” δραστηριότητά του κινήθηκε στο χώρο της “λόγιας” σύνθεσης. Ξεκινώντας από το πρωτόλειο
Concerto For Group And Orchestra του 1969 με τους Purple, κυκλοφόρησε το πρώτο του αληθινό solo masterpiece στα 1976 [Sarabande].
Σ’ αυτή, την “κλασική” πλευρά του συνθέτη είναι αφιερωμένο το podcast.

    Unexpected from a person who played keys on “Highway Star”, to this music!
    I just had to go watch a vid from 1972. Love it.
    Now, this podcast shows an entirely different aspect to this musician. This music is like soundtrack for film… could be for a kids movie or a heavy adult film.
    Wow! … This podcast is gonna break the speed of sound!!!

    Every classically trained rock / jazz keyboardist has a little Beethoven inside him. 😉
    This one’s little Beethoven is particularly interesting. Thank you!
