Keyboard legend, Rick Wakeman, famous the world over for his hugely successful and high-profile rock career - most notably with leading bands Yes and The Strawbs and for his sought-after collaborations with top artists of the day such as David Bowie and Black Sabbath - is pleased to celebrate the festive season with a brand-new album, ‘Christmas Portraits’.With all tracks personally chosen and arranged by Wakeman himself, this special holiday album celebrates Wakeman’s favourite time of the year as he performs familiar and favourite festive music, arranged for solo piano, all performed on his beloved Granary Steinway Model D grand piano.A former student and Fellow of the Royal College of Music, Wakeman has covered much musical ground during his wide-ranging career and here with ‘Christmas Portraits’, he brings his classic Wakeman twist to traditional Christmas classics, arranging some evergreens into fresh new medleys.Of this brand-new album, Rick Wakeman commented: “Christmas is my absolute favourite time of the year.  I love every aspect of it, especially traditional Christmas music and songs which have wonderful simplistic melodies that are perfect for adaptation to produce variations on the piano.  That is something I love to do and that is exactly what this album is”.TRACKLISTThe First NoelIn The Bleak MidwinterDeck The Halls With Boughs Of Holly/Away In A MangerThe Holly And The Ivy/Mary’s Boy ChildSilent NightGod Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/Angels From The Realms Of GloryO Come All Ye Faithful/Hark The Herald Angels Sing/See Amid The Winter SnowO Little Town Of BethlehemI Saw Three Ships/When A Child Is BornO Holy NightThe Coventry Carol/O Come, O Come, EmmanuelA Winter’s TaleWe Three KingsSussex Carol/It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
