Jon Lord Records Concerto For Group And Orchestra In Studio
Jon Lord is planning a studio recording of Deep Purple’s Concerto For Group And Orchestra.
Originally performed by the band in 1969 at the Royal Albert Hall, Lord is to work with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra on this project.
Says the former Purple keyboard player:
“Over these last years since leaving Deep Purple, I’ve played it over 30 times with different orchestras and conductors all over the world, and, of course, in 2000 I did it well over 30 times with Purple on the Concerto tour, so I’ve been honing the piece live on stage, and I’ve had the opportunity to change things in the score that weren’t sounding quite right. t is therefore a marvellous and exciting prospect to have the definitive recording of the definitive version of the score.”
