New Concerto recording set for September 28

On September 28, earMUSIC, releases the first studio recording of Jon’s Concerto For Group And Orchestra, the label writes in a new press release.

– Over these last years since leaving Deep Purple, I’ve played it over 30 times with different orchestras and conductors all over the world, and, of course, in 2000 I did it well over 30 times with Purple on the Concerto tour, so I’ve been honing the piece live on stage, and I’ve had the opportunity to change things in the score that weren’t sounding quite right. It is therefore a marvellous and exciting prospect to have the definitive recording of the definitive version of the score, said Jon Lord in May 2012.

Happily, Jon got to hear and approve the final mixes a few weeks before he passed away on July 16.  

Jon’s family and earMUSIC decided to proceed with the release of the album as scheduled, as this seemed the best way to celebrate and pay tribute to Jon and his music. This studio recording is exactly the way Jon wanted us to hear it.

Exclusive preview
Over the next days, will publish an exclusive early review of the album together with sound clips of the music.

  1. I too am looking forward to this recording, although somehow it won’t be the same as Jon himself is not around to see it. I hope that in time this work or another of his (maybe “To Notice Such Things”) can be given a slot at the Proms.
