Jon doubles up in Classic FM Hall of Fame 2012April 10, 2012
The results of UK’s biggest classical music poll were revealed over Easter, and Jon’s music has secured him two spots in the Top 300.
Classic FM writes:
“The transfer from pop or rock musician to classical music supremo is a path many have attempted to tread, with only limited success. In the case of the former Deep Purple keyboard player Jon lord, though, the traversal from one genre to another has been triumphant.”
#87 – Durham Concerto has climbed an impressive 66 places.
#242 – Boom of the Tingling Strings has re-entered the Classic FM Hall of Fame and is Jon’s second entry this year.
Durham Concerto was released in January 2008 and is among Jon’s most accomplished works. Listen to selected excerpts here:
Boom of the Tingling Strings was released in March 2008. The piece has autobiographical flavours. You can listen to EMI Classic’s podcast-special on the album.
