Update: More works from Jon

Jon Lord photographed at Tony Ashton’s tribute show at Abbey Road Studios in 2000 by Axel Dauer.

Disguises, Zarabanda Solitaire and Jon’s orchestral arrangement of Child in Time. These three pieces have been added to the Works section.

Conductor Paul Mann is currently going through all of Jon’s works with a view of providing a complete resource for everything to do with Jon’s work as a composer.

Click on the titles for full details:
is the emotional suite released as the second half of the CD that also features Boom of the Tingling Strings.

Child in Time was rearranged for orchestra by Jon in 2008 and was performed a few times. A live recording is available on the Live, Bucharest CD/DVD.

Zarabanda Solitairia is perhaps lesser known, a short piece written for The Smith Quartet, it bases itself on a wistful final dance ‘somewhere in Spain’.

Also in the Works section are the full work details for Concerto for Group and Orchestra, recently released in a definitive studio recording by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Paul Mann and featuring guest performances by Bruce Dickinson, Joe Bonamassa, Steve Morse, Steve Balsamo, Kasia Laska and more.

  1. I like the article but one thing- the date on the photo is incorrect. The Tony Ashton tribute was June 16, 2000. It doesn’t really matter. Keep up the good work Rasmus. You’re doing a wonderful job!

  2. First of all I’d like to say how sorry I feel and how deeply emotionally touched I was when I’ve learned of Jon having passed away.
    Jon was to perform a premiere of a new works at the KKL in Luzern, Switzerland on Oct, 26 last year which had to be cancelled for known reasons. I wonder if this material is available and will be performed eventually?

  3. The work that Jon was writing for Lucerne, “The Mountain”, which we were due to premiere in October last year, remained unfinished. As part of the process of going through his work, I’m trying to see whether there are any extant sections that might be performable.
