Jon Lord will perform the Concerto For Group & Orchestra at the 2007 Malmcolm Arnold Festival on October 7. This will be the centrepiece of a gala evening concert planned for the main auditorium at the Royal & Derngate Theatre, Northampton.
Paul Mann will conduct Jon Lord and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in a special recreation of the original concert at the Albert Hall. Jon will play the keyboards. The evening programme will run as follows:
• Jon Lord : Masque (Jon’s musical portrait of Sir Malcolm from his Disguises piece).
• Sir Malcolm Arnold : Symphony No.6 (as performed back in 1969).
• Jon Lord : Concerto for Group and Orchestra.
