Sunday night, Jon Lord performed Concerto For Group and Orchestra and a selection of solo and Deep Purple pieces in Imst, Austria – near Innsbruck.
‘The concert in Imst was wonderful! The orchestra, the band, the singers, all united in a perfect harmony with the maestro’s keyboard magic,’ writes Aleksandra Mladenovic on Jon Lord’s Facebook page.
Julia Petrova was also at the show:
‘I believe, after leaving Deep Purple, Jon Lord feels free, fulfilled and happy. He finally plays the music which he always loved the most.’
Miss Petrova also captured this rather excellent Hammond section from the Concerto:

I was lucky enough to be visiting Austria from the USA and was therefore able to see Jon for the first time since the Royal Albert Hall in ’99. The concert in Imst was excellent with Jon on jolly good form, and the orchestra, band and keyboards very tight together. The lady vocalist from Warsaw is outstanding – immense range and power, and a voice almost identical to Sam Brown’s – who made both Child in Time and a brilliant rendition of “soldier of fortune” very special.
An added bonus was the presence of Pete York, there to listen to at least one track that he had recorded with Jon some 35 years ago.
Thankyou, Jon, for a very special evening.
