Keyboard legend famous the world over for his hugely successful, high-profile rock career brings us a beautiful new piano album for the new festive season!

Apart from having a hugely successful solo career, Rick Wakeman is also notable for his time with leading bands YES and the STRAWBS and for his sought-after collaborations with top artists of the day such as David Bowie and BLACK SABBATH!

For ‘Christmas Portraits’, Rick has personally selected and arranged the material for this special holiday album, celebrating his favourite time of the year as he performs familiar and favourite festive music, arranged for solo piano, all performed on his beloved Granary Steinway Model D grand piano.

A former student and Fellow of the Royal College of Music, Wakeman has covered much musical ground during his wide-ranging career and here with ‘Christmas Portraits’, he brings his classic Wakeman twist to traditional Christmas classics, arranging some evergreens into fresh new medleys.

Of this brand-new album, Rick commented: “Christmas is my absolute favourite time of the year. I love every aspect of it, especially traditional Christmas music and songs that have wonderful simplistic melodies that are perfect for adaptation to produce variations on the piano. That is something I love to do and that is exactly what this album is”.

‘Christmas Portraits’ is also available as a Double HQ Vinyl LP – Stock # 2184584

‘Christmas Portraits’ is released on 29th November 2019.
