Multi-keyboardist Rick Wakeman brought out his first solo recording in 1973. It was his impression of the characters of 'The Six Wives of Henry VIII' and this was listed in Time Magazine's best recordings of 1973. This turning point in his career was the culmination of years of gigs and recording sessions with such artists as Cat Stevens, T-Rex and David Bowie, playing in three and four-piece bands and his own trad jazz band. Rick's original orchestration for the opening of his '1984' overture. A large amount of orchestral percussion was used for '1984' with bells, glocks, timps, tamborine, xylophone, cymbals, marimba, vibes and shakers. In the score I use the normal range of orchestral instruments including strings, brass (no tuba except in 'No Name'), woodwind (except Cor Anglais).
