Sofia says thank you

November 2, 2010

This rather excellent photo captures Jon Lord onstage in Sofia, Bulgaria on October 30.

We thank you Fedia Trifonov for sending the photo. You can read his letter here:

Dear Mr. Lord,

First of all I’d like to express mine and my family and friends’ admiration from your personality as a human being, musician and author. Although you have heard maybe such words hundreds of times please let me express my respect with this letter.

Please accept my heartfelt thanks for your concert in Sofia, on 30.10.2010 that will be engraved in my memory as one of the greatest emotional moment in my life. According to me you, with your magnificent music and personal charm are a lord in the full sense of the word.

Enclosed to this letter please find a photo that I took almost at the end of the concert. I’ll be glad if you find it attractive and use it for different purposes, or just to remember you about that great moment. Please also forgive me, that I took this photo without your knowledge and permission.

Thank you for the time spent to read my letter.

Sincerely grateful,
Fedia Trifonov (aged 59)


Jon Lord to perform entire Sarabande suite

Jon Lord has revisited his Sarabande suite from 1975 and plans to perform it live this fall. Sarabande is one of Jon Lord’s most successful and most loved orchestral works.

– In Budapest on the 18th of this month, I am playing the Sarabande suite for the first time ever live. That is, in its entirety, and in the same running order as the original recording.

– I have of course played Gigue and Bourrée many times and occasionally Pavane and Sarabande, but this is the first time the suite has been done ‘whole’.
