ALBUM DETAIL

Coming in a strictly limited edition of 1,500 copies worldwide, this box set includes 5 cds in vinyl replica and a booklet with notes written by Winger in person.

 

As the lead singer and bassist of the band bearing his last name, Kip Winger rode the '80s pop-metal explosion with Alice Cooper first and then in the wildly successful ‘80s/’90s band of his namesake, Winger, before beginning a solo career in the late '90s.Tragically, just after Winger had finished his debut solo effort "Thisconversationseemslikeadream", his wife, was killed in a car accident; still, Winger managed to support the album with a solo acoustic tour. An acoustic album of past favorites, "Down Incognito" was then released in 1999. Winger followed it with his second proper solo album, 2000's "Songs from the Ocean Floor", which addressed his grief over the loss of his wife. After a long hiatus with his solo work, Kip Winger returned with "From the Moon to the Sun" in 2008: an extensive body of work that includes everything from straight up heavy & dark to absolutely soft & beautiful.

 

More recently Winger has enjoyed solo success composing classical music. Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon created the ballet "Ghosts", based on a piece Kip wrote, which premiered at the San Francisco Ballet on February 9, 2010. The ballet was a hit and was brought back for a second season in 2010. Winger then composed a four-part work entitled "Conversations with Nijinsky", intended to celebrate the life of ballet dancer and choreographer Vaslav Nijinsky. A recording of the piece performed by the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra on the album C.F. Kip Winger: Conversations with Nijinsky reached the top of the traditional classical category on the Billboard music charts. “Conversations with Nijinsky” was also nominated in the Best Classical Contemporary Composition category at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.

 

This set is an unmissable occasion to get to know in depth the abilities and art of one of today’s music greats!
