Rigoni // Schoenherz – Victor
Before Richard Schönherz became famous as creator of the “Rilke” – and “Hesse” projects, in 1975 he created – along with Manuel Rigoni – the concept work “Victor”.
“Victor” is still considered a milestone of prog-rock, a concept album that creates the balance between orchestrated classic and sophisticated rock in a unique way.
With the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Vienna Academy Chamber Choir, musicians such as the recently deceased Kurt Hauenstein (Supermax), Harry Stojka, Achim Buchstab or Johan Daansers, “Victor” became a cinematic masterpiece about the power of youth and a plea for deference to authority, war and cruelty.
Partly recorded and mixed in the legendary Abbey Road Studios, “Victor” still is a timeless work that is worth exploring.
The MIG-new edition contains the complete, extensive booklet of the vinyl edition and has been lovingly remastered.
