Van Dyke Parks

Career-retrospective set

Summary

Van Dyke Parks will be performing a career retrospective set featuring full orchestral accompaniment from Britten Sinfonia. If you don’t know Van Dyke Parks, now is the chance to immerse yourself in a uniquely eclectic and daring landscape.

Parks may be best know for penning the lyrics to The Beach Boys’ legendary sixties masterpiece Smile but more recently his arrangements helped shape Joanna Newsom’s epic album Ys. But the true riches of Parks’ talent lies in his first three solo albums, Song Cycle (1968), Discover America (1972) and Clang of the Yankee Reaper (1975).
