Review: Milestone in pop music history

January 28, 2010

German RBB Fernsehen reports from Jon Lord’s open rehearsal in Potsdam on January 23. Click the photo to watch.

In their review of the concert (and the rehearsal), Potsdamer Neueste Nachrichten notes how ‘the “Concerto for Group and Orchestra” is a milestone in pop history.

The paper reports that Jon Lord only interrupted the dress rehearsal twice to offer determined but friendly musical advice. It also observes how the Concerto in 1969 was ‘more a test of strength between serious and popular music. Today, the generation gap does not matter anymore.’

Read the full review (German language) or read our English translation (pdf).
