    The final Jeapordy category for April 29, 2022 was 'Musical Inspirations.'

    Clue: “Tuileries” & “The Great Gate of Kiev” were 2 of the artworks that inspired this classical work completed in 1874.

    Solution: Pictures at an Exhibition.

    I nailed it of course, thanks to ELP. My wife was impressed until I told her how I knew the "question". Then not so much.

    I would also be able to answer the question who was the artist whose works were the inspiration.

On the contrary, the focal points of the composition, the Canarios interpreted in their own way and never just wanted to translate the original into the rock music. "Ciclos" should be listened to in its entirety, but
    Just on what terms of theory is it "enormously creative", Svetonio - or indeed "without pseudo-classical elements"? Is the Canarios double album somehow akin to the overarching artistic achievements of, say, Wendy Carlos?

    I agree that there certainly ARE good and cool and groovy parts on that album, but in which way does it as a whole enhance the momentum of aesthetic statement and general idea intended? What differs it from "A Fifth of Beethoven" from the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack or the mildly campy intensions of elevator lush in the music of Ekseption, Clayderman, Nigel Kennedy, Vanessa Mae or Sky?

    "Chromatic fantasy" is a Bach adaptation performed by Robert Fripp solo on the electric guitar. "Contrapunctus" comes from the same composer, written out here of course for acoustic guitars. Not to forget the final part of the "Bach Trilogy", the dignified "Passacaglia", played really well by the Robert Fripp String Quintet:

    Ok.

    I would like to mention once again Ole Edvard Antonsen's absolutely amazingly incredible adaptation of "Honky Tonk Women" into complex classical jazz exploration/narration exploitational realizationsensation. High recommend and without pseudo-classical Parsifal Löwenthal abnormal anal, it remains one of the absolytt best trytt of fytt'n'shytt.

    I would like to recommend James Last Orchestra's impossibly impressive version of "Silver Machine", which is without any pseudo-quasi negative formation of formalization.

    Is that the iteration of the group featuring members of Lucifer’s Friend?
