MIXED DRINKS is the second CD by Richard Bellak. For fans of legendary author H.P. Lovecraft, the focus of MIXED DRINKS is on the five FUNGI FROM YUGGOTH songs based on poems from Lovecraft's FUNGI FROM YUGGOTH cycle. Other musical highlights include a Fantasy for Brass and Organ and a Toccata, Adagio and Fugue for Strings. Purely instrumental pieces, they also have some of that 'dreamquest' element from Lovecraft's writing. A Prelude & Fugue for Piano, with blues/rock flavoring, and the brass-accented Finale to Bruckner's Nullte Symphony add to the wide-ranging array of musical MIXED DRINKS. There's also another album by Richard Bellak called FUGAL DREAMS (12 preludes and fugues for piano).
