Notes and Editorial Reviews

This meeting of the best of classical and pop music--Ex-Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney and the London Symphony Orchestra--proves to be very fruitful indeed. STANDING STONE is the video record of the world premiere of McCartney's eponymous symphonic poem. A gorgeous classical triumph in four movements, this piece was performed on October 14, 1997 at London's historic Royal Albert Hall. A documentary detailing the composition's creation is also included.
