The Trondheim Experiment is the title of a free web presentation of an unreleased Jon Lord concert from 2010 now available exclusively through JonLord.org.
Filmed at Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, Norway on May 23 2010 , the concert includes highlights from Jon Lord’s entire career performed with The Lord Chamber Orchestra, Steve Balsamo and Nathalie Lorichs on vocals, a children’s choir and a backing band featuring members of Opeth.
In front of a sold out cathedral, Jon’s then all-new album To Notice Such Things is performed in its entirety (missing only Air on the Blue String) with soloists Sveinung Lillebjerka on violin and Trine Knutsen on flute. Conductor Torodd Wigum was able to hand pick the musicians for the Lord Chamber Orchestra, and they perform and interpret Jon Lord’s music with skill and finesse.
Child in Time is performed for the first time with a children’s choir, a highlight for many in the audience, with Jon’s lengthy Hammond organ solo and breathtaking vocals by Steve Balsamo.
