Jon’s work cut out for you

September 15, 2012

Over the coming weeks and months, a full catalogue of Jon’s compositional work will appear online for the first time.

Aimed at concert promoters and performers foremost, as well as fans and friends, our new Works section will provide all available information on each of Jon’s works, including instrumentation and performance details.

Jon’s trusted musical collaborator, conductor Paul Mann, is currently preparing each score for publication, together with its corresponding orchestral material, and correcting the text in accordance with Jon’s final wishes.

An emotional task
– In close cooperation with Jon’s family, I am beginning the process of looking through all the music that he left behind to obtain the clearest possible overview of his work. Naturally, this is a task filled with all kinds of emotions for me, but the most important of these is love for Jon’s music and respect for his memory.

– We aim to provide some fascinating insights as well as the most complete online resource for everything to do with Jon Lord’s work as a composer, says Paul Mann.

He hopes that wherever available, the catalogue of Jon’s works can also show examples of Jon’s manuscripts, soundbites from his work and other details of interest.

Works for hire
Over the coming months, each of Jon’s works will become available for hire via his publishers in authoritative new editions, making the music readily accessible to orchestras, bands, ensembles and soloists throughout the world.

As a sample of what is to come, and to coincide with the release of the new recording of Concerto for Group and Orchestra, here is information on Jon’s most famous work with additional examples of the actual hand written revisions made by Jon and Paul in 1999.
