Yngwie J. Malmsteen
Concerto Suite For Electric Guitar And Orchestra
"Concerto Suite For Electric Guitar And Orchestra" is a Pony Canyon (Japan) released DVD featuring the maestro Yngwie J. Malmsteen with the New Japan Philharmonic live on June 15th and 17th, 2001, with all music composed by Mr. Malmsteen. After opening with an orchestra-only version of "Black Star Overture", Malmsteen enters and adds his full-blown electric guitar sound to every song that follows (OK, a few songs feature acoustic guitar). His guitar sound blends in perfectly with the orchestra, and his technique - flawless. A magical combination of classical and rock. As the observers from the Chinese Government commented after seeing the shows earlier this year, "If Mozart or Paganini were alive today with the benefit of electricity they would be Yngwie J. Malmsteen". Their comments say it all. But words can only go so far, and hype has limited meaning - the proof is in seeing the performance with your own eyes. Unbelievable!
