Sarabande is the latest of Jon’s works to have gone through a complete check up.
The new full score of Sarabande in Jon’s revised 2010 edition for group and orchestra is a milestone in Hal Leonard‘s and EMI Music‘s upcoming Jon Lord Edition.
A sample pages from the third movement Aria can be viewed here:
The 180-page score has been meticulously revised and edited by conductor Paul Mann in consultation with every available source, including the manuscript and a set of orchestral parts from the original 1975 recording sessions, which are held in the Lord family archive.
The work is being published for the first time in any form, and will be available in Spring 2013 as a study score for sale, with the corresponding performance material on hire.

The revised edition was first performed in Budapest, Hungary on September 18 2010.
