Symphonic Live is a live album from the English progressive rock band Yes. The concert was recorded at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam on 22 November 2001, with the European Festival Orchestra conducted by Wilheilm Keitel. Keyboardist Rick Wakeman was invited by the band to perform at this concert, but this did not happen because of scheduling conflicts. In his place on the tour was Tom Brislin.
There is no doubt that Yes is one of the all-time biggest progressive rock bands, up there with ELP, King Crimson, and Dark Side era Pink Floyd. All the big riffs are there, and Jon Anderson's voice sounds the same as it ever did. What's more, the Wilheilm Keitel conducted symphonic interpretations add a great deal to the majority of the soundscapes, and take a less imposing, more subtly supportive role as the concert goes on.
Symphonic Live was first released on DVD in 2002 but the audio was never released on vinyl, until now.
