The Keith Emerson, Marc Bonilla
& Terje Mikkelsen Interview
(2012)

The three-part video interview on this page features keyboard wizard Keith Emerson, guitarist Marc Bonilla and conductor Terje Mikkelsen chatting with Junkman (intrepid Vintage Rock correspondent and KNAC.com DJ) about Three Fates Project, which has been described as a "hybrid of orchestral and rock." Keith Emerson gets an opportunity to combine some of the music he originally recorded with Emerson, Lake & Palmer with a 70-piece orchestra and Marc Bonilla's spell-binding guitar work.


Part 1

Three Fates Project includes orchestral arrangements of Emerson, Lake & Palmer's "The Endless Enigma," "Tarkus" and "Abaddon's Bolero." There are also takes on Aaron Copland's "Fanfare For The Common Man" and Alberto Ginastera's "Malambo." Marc Bonilla's "American Matador" combines a monumental orchestral lift to the guitarist's bag of tricks. There are even some new compositions: Emerson's "After All Of This," and Bonilla's "Walking Distance" and "The Mourning Sun."


Part 2

Recorded in Munich and Los Angeles over a nine-month period starting in the summer of 2011, Three Fates Project also features the 70-piece Münchner Rundfunkorchester conducted by world-reknown Maestro Terje Mikkelsen, along with the Keith Emerson Band featuring bassist Travis Davis and drummer Troy Luccketta from Tesla. It was a real pleasure for Vintage Rock to sit down on a pleasant Sunday afternoon with these three gentlemen and talk about this project. We hope you enjoy the interview as much as we did.
