Review: ‘Quite an achievement’

March 27, 2010

Music Web International reviews Jon Lord’s new album To Notice Such Things.

‘To Notice Such Things is clearly a very personal and affecting portrait of Lord’s friendship with John Mortimer,’ opens the review which goes on to applaud the music with descriptive adjectives such as ‘warm vernal freshness’ … ‘invoking and reviving’ … ‘brusquely joyous strings’ … ‘a Shostakovich-like caustic serration to the string writing’ …

The review concludes, ‘this is a well presented, recorded and annotated album and one that will please those who respond to Finzian pastoral melancholy. Quite an achievement.’
