Tolga Kashif records Genesis at Abbey Road

Thursday, 9 September 2010

Composer and producer Tolga Kashif has finished recording his latest work, The Genesis Suite, due for release in October 2010.

The Genesis Suite comprises orchestral pieces in a range of styles based on Genesis songs. Kashif set about composing the Suite as a tribute to the band, with their blessing. Rather than simply arranging the original songs, Kashif’s goal has been “to maintain the essence of the songs whilst expanding and extending out some of my own thoughts, taking it hopefully to another level where I’m grappling with the material in a more profound way which Genesis and classical fans alike will appreciate.” The project features Rhythmix own Russ Grooms.
