Brand new exclusive photo book – Jon Lord in the Nidaros Cathedral 2010 –  takes you behind the curtain on Jon Lord‘s final concert at Trondheim’s imposing Nidaros Cathedral in Norway.

Photographer and life long Jon Lord and Deep Purple afficionado Trond J Strøm was given access to the final dress rehearsal for Jon Lord’s concert at Nidaros on May 23, 2010. He managed to capture that day’s rehearsals with atmospheric portraits of Jon, singers Steve Balsamo and Nathalie Lorichs and the orchestra and the backing band, which consisted of members from progressive rock band Opeth.

‘Experiencing Jon’s music at such close proximity under such private circumstances was astounding’, remembers Trond J Strøm today and mentions in particular hearing Child in Time performed for the one and only time ever with a large childrens choir. Read the rest of this entry ?

Jon Lord in Budapest: Maestro-pieces galore

September 22, 2010

Jon Lord has reached a new level with his efforts to merge modern rhythmical music with the orchestral world. This became apparent Saturday night at Budapest‘s Béla Bartók National Concert Hall. The musical gods smiled down on a near-sold out Hungarian audience as they witnessed the world premiere of Jon Lord’s reworked Sarabande suite performed in full.

And quite fitting it is too that Lord would premiere this exact work here, inspired as it is largely by traditional music from this part of the world. With him onstage were local Deep Purple tribute band Cry Free and the Györ Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Márton Rácz. With Kasia Łaska as Jon Lord’s mainstay female vocalist and Attila Scholtz as stand-in for Steve Balsamo on male voice, it was a very strong lineup.

So let’s go back and relive that magical night.
