Sunday May 23 will see Jon Lord back in Trondheim, Norway. He will return to Trondheim’s imposing Nidaros Cathedral to play with a 16-piece string section consisting of members from the Trondheim Soloists and the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra.
The evening’s program is still not finalised, but expect to hear Jon Lord on piano playing some of his solo pieces, possibly even from his new album, To Notice Such Things.
Jon Lord has a long history with Trondheim and the nearby Hell Blues Festival. In 2003, he was made Ambassador of Hell, and at his most recent visit to Trondheim he performed his (yet to be recorded) string and choir piece From Darkness to Light at Trondheim’s imposing Nidaros Dome in 2007.
His return visit to Trondheim coincides with Trondheim Rock 2010, which will feature Glenn Hughes, Gary Moore and others.
