A Midsummer Night's Dream. CD - Angel Records, EMI Music Distribution. Ex-Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett steps into Anthony Phillips territory on this classical instrumental album inspired by the Shakespeare play, which grew into a CD-length suite recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Before Hackett recorded his fourth album Defector, he organised a series of gigs in November 1979, including one in London at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, to test out new material. In April 1997 he released the neo-classical influenced A Midsummer Night's Dream with accompaniments from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. It reached the top 10 UK classical chart. This marked the beginning of keyboardist, arranger, and producer Roger King taking a more prominent role on Hackett's future albums and live shows. In 1999, Hackett released his fourteenth studio album, Darktown.

An orchestra and Steve Hackett on classical guitar, how can you go wrong? That’s a rhetorical question of course. Fifteen tracks follow through a memorable journey, one you don’t get tired of hearing. This is an album which was recorded in 1997 as Steve was invited to do a show with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The music was all composed by Steve Hackett.

I'm thrilled that EMI is re-releasing this album. I felt 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' was the most poetic title of all Shakespeare's plays, and I wrote the pieces with the text in mind. I love the sound of classical guitar with orchestra. I knew that orchestra would enlarge the themes and work as a kind of bed, plus emblazon a trail for pieces such as In the Beached Margent of the Sea, Starlight, Mountains turned into Clouds and Celebration
