Rock music and classical music might seem like they would be completely opposed to one another. One champions outrageousness, guitars and excess, while the other oozes refinement, poise and good taste - but there are a surprisingly large number of instances where these two seemingly adversarial worlds cross over. Join us as we explore the heady combination of rock and classical!
Lead singer of avant-garde post-punk band Killing Joke Jaz Coleman underwent a musical transformation in the '80s. After temporarily quitting his band in 1982, he studied classical composition and conducting for ten years and now works with some of the finest ensembles in the world, and even composed symphonic arrangements of the music of The Doors and Led Zeppelin. In fact, German conductor Klaus Tennstedt dubbed Coleman the 'new Mahler'. Praise indeed!
