‘As music teachers go, he has to be one of the coolest in town. Deep Purple legend Jon Lord will be taking a group of budding Edinburgh rock stars under his wing as they prepare for a special performance of one of his seminal works.

The six local students, aged between 16 and 22, will be playing with Lord, as well as the Scottish Philharmonic orchestra and students from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama Glasgow, next year.’

  3. Hi John, i heared the Durham concerto in full a coyple of weeks ago on classic fm. I am interested to know what manner of man can produce music of such absolute beauty, the crescendos send shivers of delight down my spine, the hairs on the back of my neck tingle with emotion at such lovely sounds. It is high time that this country got itself a formiddable rival to the yanks Sam Barber, and John, you have certainly achieved that.
