About Georg

 

“The Prog influence abounds in your playing… reminds me so much of Bill Bruford” – David Lipman – South Africa

Georg Voros began turning heads with his unique brand of drumming in the early 80’s when he became a founder member of cult South African band ‘eVoid’.  Soon after Georg worked with award winning solo artist and composer Neill Solomon…

About the album

Album-cover1

‘Bach to Me’ is the result of an idea born many years ago as Georg always had the desire to create a work leaning towards his classically focused Prog Rock roots. His formative drumming influences were greatly influenced and shaped by bands like ELP, Jethro Tull, Kansas, Genesis, Yes, PFM, Focus and many more…

The outcome is an album that draws on these influences, but also his inclination toward the classical genre. Bach to Me features a rework and original arrangements of classical icon J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 1, the 3rd movement from Trio Sonata, JESU – Joy of Desiring and a dedication to the master in the form of a original ‘drum and keyboard improvisations’ piece entitled ‘For Johann’. The result is an album that would probably be categorized in the Progressive and Symphonic Rock genres, and maybe even Classical Rock.

The musical palette for this album was wide open to add as little or as much color as required. The culmination is a passionately drawn original album with arrangements meticulously crafted to produce music that is both challenging and fresh. Add to this mix the Avant Garde approach of “For Johann’ showcasing Georg’s drumming mastery and the spectacular skills of keyboard wizard Duncan Mackay (10cc, Camel, Alan Parsons Project) and you have an exciting fusion of music harking back to the era of the ‘concept album’ with modern day sensibility and attitude.
