The Durham Concerto was recorded live for Classic FM at Durham Cathedral on October 20, 2007. It is Jon Lord’s brand new work for orchestra, Hammond organ and Northumbrian pipes.
The musical influences span jazz, ragtime, rock, and Northumbrian folk music, including an old miners’ lament. The 45-minute Concerto consists of six movements, arranged into three parts: Morning, Afternoon and Evening.
Katie Derham premiers the Durham Concerto on Classic FM.
