Manfred Mann and others - Peter and the Wolf (1998)




Petar i vuk je delo Sergeja Prokofjeva i jedno je od najomiljenijih muzika za decu. Komad je deo staljinisticke ere sovjetske propagande. 1936 Prokofjevu je naruceno od strane Centralnog Decjeg pozorista u Moskvi da napise novu muzicku simfoniju za decu. Namera je bila da se kultiviuu "muzicki ukusi kod dece iz prvih godina skole". Zaintrigiran Prokofjev zavrsio delo "Petar i vuk" u samo cetiri dana. Prica govori o avanturama decaka Petra,koji je "Mladi Pionir"(komunista izvidjac) i njegovih prijatelja, ptice, patke i macke. Namera je bila da se pokaze hrabrost i snalazljivost koje svi mladi ljudi steknu kada postanu "Mladi pioniri", i vuka, koji zavrsava vezan, i bude poslat u zooloski vrt koga kasnije Piter spasava. Prvi nastup dela 1936 je bio nesrecan u najmanju ruku. Po recima kompozitora : "...posecenost je bio siromasna i nije uspelo da privuce veliku paznju". Tokom godina bilo je mnogo zabelezenih verzija komada, pocev od 1939 koji je uradio "Bostonsi simfonijski orkestar", pa sve do nekoliko adaptacije koje su radili rok muzicari. David Bovie je recimo insistirao na promeni scenarija, jer je mislio da ce deca vise vole da su lovci naoruzani sa sacmaricama, a ne puskama. Ova verzija gde su izvodjaci sam vrh rock muzike ( Gari Moore, Manfred Mann, Fil Kolins, Bil Bruford, Stephane Grappelli, Alvin Lee, Cozi Povell, Brian Eno, Jon Hiseman... ), je veoma heterogena: od psihodelicne rok muzike do dzeza (Grappellijeva violina na motivimam macke) i po mom misljenju, bolje negobilo koja druga verzija. Deogde vuk guta patku je zaista muzicki zastrasujuci i zaista brutalan. Ako slusate pazljivo, mozete cuti patka unutar stomaka vuka, jer je vuk u svojoj zurbi je progutao zivu. U stvari poslusajte pa zakljucite sami...Mozda ovu verziju i pocnete pustati svojoj deci...Ko zna!

Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokoviev is one of the best loved pieces of children’s music in the world. Although known by millions, far fewer people realise that the piece had its origins in a canny slice of Stalinist-era Soviet Propaganda. In 1936 Sergei Prokofiev was commissioned by Natalya Sats and the Central Children's Theatre in Moscow to write a new musical symphony for children. The intent was to cultivate "musical tastes in children from the first years of school". Intrigued by the invitation, Prokofiev completed Peter and the Wolf in just four days. The original story tells of the adventures of the eponymous Peter, a ‘Young Pioneer’ (a sort of Communist boy scout) and his friends; a bird, a duck and a cat, and of what happens when they interact with a wild canid of the species Canis lupus. It was intended to show the resourcefulness and courage which all young people acquire from a spell in the Young Pioneers, and the wolf (who ends up tied up, and sent to a zoo after Peter saves his life) is very probably symbolic of the forces of counter-revolutionary reactionism (or something like that). The first performance of the story back in 1936 was inauspicious to say the least. In the composer’s own words: "...[attendance] was poor and failed to attract much attention". Over the years there have been many recorded versions of the piece, starting with a 1939 recording by Richard Hale with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and continuing out throughout the cultural landscape of both sides of the quondam Iron Curtain like ripples on the ocean after someone has lobbed a nice big stone into it. There have been several adaptations of the piece featuring rock musicians, most notably one narrated by David Bowie (who insisted on changing the script because he thought that children would prefer that the hunters were armed with shotguns rather than rifles. Gonzo Multimedia are just about to reissue an unjustifiably obscure version from 1975. Masterminded by Robin Lumley and Jack Lancaster it is a truly rocking adaptation Their music makes use of some of Prokofiev's original themes. Along with Vivian Stanshall as the narrator, the staff is illustrious (among others Gary Moore, Manfred Mann, Phil Collins, Bill Bruford, Stéphane Grappelli, Alvin Lee,Cozy Powell, Brian Eno, Jon Hiseman); the music is very heterogeneous: from psychedelic rock music to jazz (Grappelli's violin solo on the motif of the cat). It works surprisingly well, two aspects in particular working – to my mind – better than in any other version. Firstly, the section where the wolf swallows the duck is truly terrifying. The music is truly brutal, and Viv Stanshall is just as good as one might have hoped. And secondly, the ending. On most versions the listener is told that "if you listen very carefully, you'd hear the duck quacking inside the wolf's belly, because the wolf in his hurry had swallowed her alive." As a child, and even as an adult I found that to be immensely disturbing. The idea of the poor bloody duck being slowly dissolved by the wolf’s gastric juices was not the sort of concept that I would want my children to hear about. On the other hand, the 1946 Disney version that had the duck just hiding in a tree was not only a reversal of the concept of the story, but also didn’t really make much sense. The version on this album which has the imprisoned wolf opening its mouth and the duck hopping out is both child friendly, and true enough to the original concept not to be a major conceptual irritant. This is a jolly good album, and some of the playing on it is absolutely extraordinary. Would I play it to my kids? Hell yeah. Would I listen to it myself? What do you think I am doing now?

Nikolo Kotzev's - Nostradamus (2001)




Nikolo Kotzev Bugarski Gitarista, violinista, kompozitor, producent...mozda najpoznatiji bas po ovoj rock operi. Naravno kao i sve rock opere i ova je konceptualna i  govori o poznatom proroku Nostradamusu. Uspeh opere je verovatno zasnovan na cinjenici da Nikolo Kotzev nije samo rock nego i kompozitor klacicne muzike. U ovoj rock operi kombinuju se veliki broj muzickih pravaca: prog metal, progressive rock, classical, operatic, a sam kompozitor je angazovao impesivna imena : Alannah Myles, Sass Jordan, Glenn Hughes, Joe Lynn Turner...

Nikolo Kotzev,born 1960, is a Bulgarian guitarist, violinist, song writer and producer, perhaps most famous for his 2001 rock opera Nostradamus and his band Brazen Abbot.

This is a concept album based on the predictions of the 16th century prophet Nostradamus.
Principally recorded at Nitrax Studios, Mariehamn, Finland between 1997 & 2000.
This collection features orchestral rock songs written by guitarist Nikolo Kotzev regarding the life of the prophet Nostradamus.
There was a time in the '70s when rock operas were all the rage. Since then they have been pretty scarce, and many times with good reason. This rock opera is quite possibly the most successful attempt at the genre to have ever come around. The awesome results are probably greatly related to the fact that the CD's creator (Kotzev) is not only a rock composer, but also an accomplished classical composer. The result is a CD that combines prog metal work, progressive rock, and plenty of classical/operatic leanings to achieve a very potent mix. Kotzev also recruited a considerably impressive cast to fill out the roles in his creation. That cast includes such names as Alannah Myles, Sass Jordan, Glenn Hughes, and Joe Lynn Turner. The work is very powerful, emotional, and inspiring. ~ Gary Hill
Nostradamus is a fascinating combination of powerful rock music mixed with orchestral elements involving a full blown symphonic orchestra as well as some of the most respected voices/talents in rock, Alannah Miles, Goran Edman, Yngwie Malmsteen, Glenn Hughes (Black Sabbath, Deep Purple) & Joe Lynn Turner. Composed by guitarist Nikolo Kotzev, it's based on the life & visions of the 16th century prophet. Standard double jewelcase. 2001 release.

Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime (1988)




"Operation: Mindcrime" je konceptualni album americkog progresivnog metala benda "Queensryche". Pusten je u prodaju 3. maja 1988, i to je bendu treci album. Ova rok opera prica o oporavku narkomanke koja razocarana drustvom u kojem zivi nevoljno postaje clan revolucionarne grupe koja se bavi svrgavanjem i ubijanjem politickih lidera. U januaru 1989, ovaj album je bio na 34. mestu u 100 Najboljih Heavi Metal albuma svih vremena.

Operation: Mindcrime is a concept album by American progressive metal band Queensryche. Released on May 3, 1988, it is the band's third full-length album. A rock opera, its story follows a recovering drug addict who becomes disillusioned with the society of the time and reluctantly becomes involved with a revolutionary group as an assassin of political leaders. In January 1989, it ranked #34 on Kerrang! magazine's "100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums Of All Time".

The album begins with the protagonist, Nikki, in a hospital. He lies in a near catatonic state, unable to remember anything but snippets from his past. Suddenly, Nikki's memories come flooding back in a torrent. He remembers how, as a heroin addict and would-be political radical frustrated with contemporary society, he was manipulated into joining a supposed secret organization dedicated to revolution. At the head of this organization is a political and religious demagogue known only as Dr. X, who by manipulating Nikki through a combination of his heroin addiction and brainwashing techniques, uses Nikki as an assassin. Whenever Dr. X uses the word "mindcrime" Nikki becomes his docile puppet, a state which Dr. X uses to command Nikki to undertake any murder that the Doctor wishes. Through one of Dr. X's probable associates, a corrupt priest named Father William, Nikki is offered the services of a prostitute-turned-nun named Sister Mary. Through his friendship and growing affection toward Sister Mary, Nikki begins to question the nature of what he is doing. Dr. X notices this and, seeing a potential threat in Mary, orders Nikki to kill both her and the priest. Nikki goes to Mary's church and kills the priest, but after confronting Mary fails to comply with the command to murder her. He and Mary decided to leave the organization together, and Nikki goes to Dr. X to tell him that they are out. Dr. X, however, reminds Nikki that he is an addict, and that he is the one who can provide him with his daily fix. Nikki leaves, conflicted and returns to Mary, only to find her dead. He cannot cope with the loss, as well as the possibility that he himself may have killed her and not known it, and begins to succumb to insanity. He runs through the streets calling her name. The Police arrive and attempt to subdue him. A gun is found on him, and they take him into custody under suspicion of Mary's murder and the murders he committed for Dr. X. Suffering from complete loss of memory he is put into a hospital, where he sees a news report on the recent spree of political homicides. This jogs his memory and returns us to the beginning where he remembers what has happened and begins to tell his story.

Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime II (2006)




"Operation: Mindcrime II" je deveti studijski album americkog progresivnog metala benda "Queensryche" . Kao i onaj iz 1998. i ovaj je konceptualni albuma , a nastavak je price iz tog vremena. Objavljen je 4. aprila, 2006 u Severnoj Americi, 29. marta 2006 izlazi u Japanu , 31. marta u Nemackoj i 3. aprila u ostatku sveta.

Album nastavlja pricu o Nikki, narkomannki i revolucionarki, ubici politicara koja je uhapsena zbog ubistva. Ova prica pocinje, nakon 18 godina a Niki pustena iz zatvora i pocinje da planira svoju osvetu protiv dr.X-a, manipulativnog negativca sa prvog albuma.

Kao gosti na ovom projektu pojavljuju se slavni (pokojni) vokal Ronnie James Dio kao i Pamela Moore i Miranda Tate. Album je debitovao na Billboard 200 listi albuma i zavrsio na 14. mestu.

Operation: Mindcrime II is the ninth studio album by American progressive metal band Queensryche. It is a concept album and the sequel to the group's 1988 release, Operation: Mindcrime. The album was released on April 4, 2006 in North America, (March 29, 2006 release in Japan, March 31 in Germany, April 3 rest of world) on the Rhino Entertainment label. The lead single, "I'm American," was performed by Queensryche during their 2005 tour in support of Judas Priest.

The album resumes the story of Nikki, a drug-addicted political revolutionary assassin who was arrested for the murder of enslaved prostitute-nun Sister Mary at the end of Operation: Mindcrime. As Operation: Mindcrime II begins, 18 years later, Nikki is released from prison and begins to plot his revenge against Dr. X, the manipulative villain of the first album.

Vocalist Pamela Moore reprised her role as Sister Mary for the album, while the role of Dr. X (played by actor Anthony Valentine on the first album) was taken over by heavy metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio.

The album debuted on the Billboard 200 album chart at #14, the highest chart position for a Queensryche album since Promised Land peaked at #3 in 1994. The tracks "I'm American" and "The Hands" have been released as singles with accompanying videos.

The story picks up 18 years after the events of Operation: Mindcrime, on the day that Nikki is released from prison. During his incarceration, Nikki has been unable to let go of his hatred for Dr. X, who has since become rich and powerful. Nikki still harbors resentment against the American government, which he still views as corrupt and beyond saving. The training (or brainwashing) he received from Dr. X still has a strong hold over Nikki, but he is conflicted nonetheless. While he still feels the need to carry out his revolutionary mission, his thoughts drift to Mary.

Nikki lands himself in trouble with the law once again, and at his trial his pleas for mercy and leniency are lost on a judge and jury still remembering his past crimes. This only deepens his disdain for the government, the legal system and Dr. X, whom he blames for all of his problems. After Nikki escapes and finds himself yet again on the run from the law, his own need for revenge coupled by a vision of Mary's ghost turns his thoughts toward killing Dr. X.

As a confrontation gets closer, Nikki starts to have doubts. He questions himself and wonders if it isn’t really his own fault that his life is as bad as it is. Nikki does finally track down Dr. X and kills him. Wondering whether the killing has really made anything better, Nikki becomes further consumed by doubt and despair. The ghost of Mary appears again and angrily exhorts Nikki to kill himself. He starts to think that he is insane and commits suicide. As the album ends, Nikki's spirit is reunited with Mary's, and together they reflect that the only times they were happy were in the moments they were together.

The story of Operation: Mindcrime II was also expanded on with video and actors during Queensryche's live performance of the album.

Repo! - The Genetic Opera (2008)




Radi se o rok operi izdavacke kuce "Magna Carta" i Pete Morticelli-ja a komponovanje je povereno je vrlo sposobnom muzicaru Trent Gardner-u (Magellan i Explorer's Club). Za nekoliko godina, Gardner je napisao i producirao ovaj masivan projekt a sama muzika je mesavina filmskog progressive rocka, simfonijskog rocka, popa i progresivnog metala, a sve to skupa krasi atmosvera scenske muzike. Na albumu dominira raznolikost talenovanihh pevaca. Glavni lik, Leonardo, dat je James LaBrie ( Dream Theater) . James je po mom misljenju, pevao kao ni na jednom albumu maticnog benda, ali naravno za svo vreme snimanja on je isao na obuku kod poznatog profesora operskog pevanja i stvarno je sebe nadmasio. Ovo je samo uvod u jedni fantasticnu pricu koja se moze doziveti na razne nacine u zavisnosti od senzibiliteta slusaoca. Ja sam inace veliki kolekcionar rock opera, kojih ima prilican broj i koje nisu predstavljene na pravi nacin.

Royal Hunt - Show Me How To Live (2011)




Po stilu vrlo slican grupi Dream Theater. Simfonijski hevi metal sa jakim klasicnim uticajem. Na to poseban uticaj ima vodja benda André Andersen koji je orijentisan klasicnoj muzici. Naravno oseca se i jak uticaj grupa Deep Purple, ELP, Rainbow, ali to je kod ovakvih bendova sasvim normalna i po meni vrlo dobra orijentacija. Medjutim kao i ostali bendovo ovog zanra i oni svemu daju svoj pecat koji je godinama postao vrlo prepoznatljiv. Ono sto je veoma bitno i novo za ovaj album je da se vokal D C Cooper vratio u bend u kojem je poceo svoju karijeru. A sto se mene tice grupa nikada nija bila ista od vremena kada ju je on napustio, kao sto ni on sam nije uspeo sa svojim solo projektima. Nekako je i bilo prirodno da ponovo urade nesto zajedno sto je rezultiralo ovako dobrim albumom. Dakle vredelo je vratiti se. Produkcija je vrhunska a numera broj jedan "One More Day" je kao stvorena za neko njihovo Best izdanje. Sam album kao celina moze da se uvrsti i medju sve popularniji pravac - Rosk opere.

Band members:

D.C. Cooper - Vocals (Amaran's Plight, D.C. Cooper, Missa Mercuria, Silent Force, ex-Explorers Club, ex-Steel Seal)

Solaris - Nostradamus: Book of Prophecies (1999)




Odlican album, veoma intenzivan i pravi simfonijski, gde glavnu "rec" ima cvrsta flauta, koju svira Kolar Atila, inace jedan od najboljih na tom instrumentu. Velicanstveni horovi (pevaci madjarske drzavne Opere) uz snazne bubnjeve i bas gitaru, cine ovu rock operu nesvakidasnjim ostvarenjem. Solaris je jedan od retkih bendova u kojima uprkos istaknutoj flauti slusalac ne razmislja o Jethro Tull-u, jer je zvuk je prilicno simfonijski za razliku od Andersona. Ovaj konceptualni album o prorocanstvima Nostradamusa prolazi kroz mracne atmosfere i emotivne predele kao i jedinstveni i originalni zvuk ovog vrhunskog madjarskog benda.

An excellent album, very intense and symphonic. Solid flute lead work (Kollar Attila is one of the greatest flute players), lots of majestic chorus interventions (singers of Hungarian State Opera) and the strong participation of drums, bass, guitar and -specially- the electronic keyboards, makes "Nostradamus" a must. SOLARIS is one of the few bands where, despite the prominent flute role, the listener doesn't think about JETHRO TULL, because the sound is pretty much symphonic and pompous. This conceptual album about the prophecies of Nostradamus goes on through some dark atmospheres and emotive landscapes, mixtured with powerful and, at the same time, delicated melodies. All tracks are simply highlights, confirming once more the full-quality line and the unique original sound of this superb Hungarian band.

Musicians:

Attila Kollar - flute, vocal
Csaba Bogdan - guitars
Gabor Kisszabo - bass
Tamas Pocs - bass
Robert Erdesz - keyboards
Laszlo Gomor - drums

The Psychedelic Ensemble - The Tale of the Golden King (2013)




The Psychedelic Ensemble je jedan covek - jedan bend koji je odlucio da ostane anoniman. "The Tale of the Golden King " je prica o Kralju koji je prerastao u zlatnu statuu, a kasnije generacije u carstvu koriste statuu da bi pobedi u bitkama protiv tiranije...

The Psychedelic Ensemble is a one man band who chooses to remain anonymous, with the only outside collaboration being with Janos Marton and Alexandra Serban, who together with the artist, carefully selected images produced by artists at the Living Museum as imagery for the album.
The project came about some years ago, starting after the artist stumbled on an article in The New York Times about an exhibition featuring art from the Living Museum, a center devoted to artistic production by patients at the Creedmoor Psychiatric Center in Queens, New York. Then in the summer of 2008,an NPR interview with psychiatrist and Living Museum curator, Janos Marton struck a chord that brought about the conception of the opening of The Art of Madness: I think that creativity, and artistic production, is almost a symptom of mental illness. From there the album was written and recorded over 3 months in 2008.

Ann Caren: Lead and Backing Vocals

The Rome Pro(G)ject - The Rome Pro(G)ject (2012)




 'The Rome Pro(G)ject' is a concept album that reflects the history, monuments and psyche of The Eternal City via a series of musical vignettes and features several well-kent names from planet prog. It's also a glorification of Anglo-Italian collaboration and alternate tracks feature the likes of continentals Mauro Montobbio of Narrow Pass and members of Il Tempio delle Clessidre, and John Hackett and Nick Magnus from the UK. The path travelled follows the city's evolution, from the mythic material of twins Romulus and Remus suckling on a wolf's teats, to the modern day and projecting forward as a city of the future.

After a short prologue featuring Banco's Francesco Di Giacomo reading extracts from Livy's 'The History of Rome' the album kicks off proper with '... April 21st 753 B.C.' Appropriately enough - since it deals with the birth of the city and the legendary circumstances around which it got its name - this track features the Italian house band. The listener's attention may be focused on the big guns of the duty roster but the album isn't solely dependent on the famous individuals. Vincenzo Ricca is the main man behind the project and his vintage keys have more fizz than a sherbet fountain, although admittedly there are occasional nods to 'Cinema Show' on this track.

Talking of fountains, the inspiration for the album came when Steve Hackett quipped to his friend Ricca in 2009 that he would like to make a record about the fountains of Rome. The idea subsequently grew to involve a number of famous musicians and 'Over 2,000 Fountains' showcases the almost liturgical violin (acoustic and electric) of David Cross, along with more Genesis influence in the form of 12-string guitars and a 'play me Old King Cole' feel in places. Hackett himself features on 'Down To Domus Aurea' and this track has enough pomp and bombast to match that of the great city.

While the expansive form of the music largely reflects the subject matter, the English musicians involved in the project likewise have connections to Italy. 'Caracalla's Dream' is a sensitive dialogue between a flute and the fretless bass of Richard Sinclair, a chap who has all but settled in Italy and lives there for most of the year. And of course David Jackson has close links to Osanna; the album is mostly an all-you-can-eat symphonic feast but his 'A Mankind Heritage...' provides a significant counterpoise and it sure spices things up with its Bacchanalian sax and flute evocations.

Saying that 'The Rome Pro(G)ject' represents a bonanza of famous English proggers is a bit like describing Gustav Klimt's 'The Kiss' as two people snogging in a psychedelic sleeping bag. But it's very much a joint venture with enough arrabbiata sauce to satisfy fans of the Italian prog; it harks back to a lost golden age and seventies-style prog almost leaps out of the speakers like that mythical wolf.

Neka od najznacajnijih imena progresivne rok scene sviraju u slavu lepote i velicine Rima, a povodom 2765-e godisnjice osnivanja. U pitanju je italijanski konceptualni albuma koji je osmislio i producirao Vincenzo Ricca kao muzicku setnju kroz istoriju Rima opisujuci kako njegovu velicinu i lepotu, tako i negovu vecnost. Album je uglavnom instrumentalan a gostujuci umetnici poznati u prog-rock zajednici svaku numera nude kao nesto posebno. Izdanje je pusteno u prodaju sa samo 500 primeraka.

Francesco Di Giacomo (Banco del Mutuo Soccorso) - narration
Vincenzo Ricca - keyboards
Paolo Ricca - electric guitar
Franck Carducci - electric bass, 12-string guitar
