Classic In Pop (Cass, Album). Ekseption's idea to record well-known classical themes started in 1968, when the group visited a concert of a British group called The Nice. The six boys were impressed by the way The Nice mixed pop and classical music. A few weeks after the concert Ekseption was invited to play with one of the finest symphony orchestras in Holland - the North Holland Philharmonic - at a big festival in Haarlem. The obvious man with Ekseption to handle this project was 22-year old pianist Rick van der Linder, who also was one of the most promising young classical pianists in Holland

Ekseption was a Dutch rock band active from 1967 to 1989, playing mostly-instrumental progressive rock and classical rock. The central character in the changing roster, and the only band member present on every album, was trumpeter Rein van den Broek (10 September 1945 - 11 May 2015). The band knew some commercial success in the 1970s, having Dutch top ten hit singles with their adaptations of Beethoven's "Fifth" and Bach's (Celebrated) "Air".
