La Divina Commedia 6-Disc Hardback book set

Tangerine Dream have been a fundamental influence on electronic music since Edgar Froese founded the band in West Berlin in 1967. Providing the groundwork for multiple electronic music genres including ambient & electronica, inspiring musicians & other art forms, with seven Grammy nominations to their credit. In recent years their music has featured in the popular TV shows such as 'Stranger Things' & video games including 'Grand Theft Auto V'.

Edgar Froese was an artist with a truly clear vision. His life & work were characterised by holding on to the belief in the evolution of music as an art form. That became a predominantly principle within Tangerine Dream: the group he founded in 1967, following his encounter with painter & sculptor Salvador Dali.

Tangerine Dream went fully independent in 1996, launching their own TDI label & company & at the start of the new millennium, Froese met painter & artist Bianca Froese-Acquaye which subsequently led to the first part of the Dante Trilogy, Inferno, being recorded. This followed with seven live performances, partly with an orchestra, across Europe.

'La Divina Commedia' aka The Dante Trilogy was to be Tangerine Dream's most ambitious & elaborate project to date, Edgar Froese's life work.

Now, the entire trilogy (Inferno, Purgatorio, Paradiso) is presented in a deluxe 60-page hardback book set via Kscope. All albums have been remastered by close collaborator Harald Pairits with the 2002 live concert DVD filmed at Castle Nideggen, Cologne featured as a bonus disc. The hardback book features extensive liner notes by noted author Wouter Bessels, an essay by Edgar's close collaborated & wife Bianca Froese-Acquaye & previously unseen photographs from Edgar's private archive.
