Fifty scores celebrate Jon’s 74th birthdayJune 9, 2015
Heading the line-up is the newly revised full score of Durham Concerto, one of Jon’s finest orchestral achievements. This new edition incorporates all of the many alterations made by the composer since the premiere in 2007, and was first performed last month in Hagen, Germany.
Celebrating the performance, we are now offering the Durham Concerto score at a reduced price.
Also newly available in full score is a genuine Jon Lord rarity. Fanfares and Variations on “La chanson de Pierson” is a short piece for large brass ensemble, which Jon wrote for the Jersey Liberation Music Festival in 2010. It has never been recorded or performed since its premiere.
Conductor Paul Mann continues his work on Jon’s published legacy and forthcoming plans include the first ever publication of songs November Calls, The Sun Will Shine Again (originally sung by Frida), and Before I Forget.
Also in the works is the first-ever appearance in print of the Gemini Suite from 1971, which was recently discovered among Jon’s archived materials. Click photo to enlarge.
