As we celebrate the 45th anniversary of the first performance of Jon Lord’s Concerto for Group and Orchestra at London’s Royal Albert Hall on September 24, 1969, here’s a few words from conductor Paul Mann on the occasion:
Working from Jon’s rearranged scores from 2010, when the Sarabande suite was first performed live at a concert in Budapest, conductor Paul Mann has updated and revised the entire score and included all available information to create the most final edition possible.
Jon Lord revisited Sarabande late in life and performed a new arrangement of it at a world premier in Budapest, Hungary in 2010. Read our full report from that concert.
You can now get Concerto for Group and Orchestra, Jon Lord’s final recording, on deluxe 2LP vinyl at a specially reduced price at our webshop.
