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!
Jeff Wayne began his musical career composing advertising jingles, but his career took off when he composed and recorded his musical version of the HG Wells novel War Of The Worlds. For the most part it's a prog-rock epic, but the famous theme from 'Eve Of The War' and 'Forever Autumn' are full of orchestral clout. Stage versions of the album have been performed with classical stars like Russell Watson (pictured) and Rhydian Roberts.
