Editorial Reviews

EMI Classics are pleased to release two symphonic works by Jon Lord, better known as a founder member of one of the all-time great rock groups, Deep Purple. Lord's new Piano Concerto, 'Boom of the Tingling Strings,' is performed by Nelson Goerner with the Odense Symfoniorkester under conductor Paul Mann, the concerto's dedicatee. Lord's Suite for String Orchestra, entitled 'Disguises,' completes the programme. Parallel to his rock career, Jon Lord has composed music for orchestra for nearly forty years. Sometimes described as 'classical cross-over,' Lord's compositions reflect his many musical enthusiasms, which, in addition to orchestral music and rock, include jazz and folk music. While still a member of the 'band,' Lord's Concerto for Group and Orchestra was recorded by Deep Purple with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under Sir Malcolm Arnold, selling hundreds of thousands of copies worldwide. Since leaving the re-formed Deep Purple in 2002, Jon has focused his attention on composing. EMI have previously released a number of his works to critical acclaim, including Pictured Within and Beyond the Notes. Describing the genesis of his Piano Concerto, Jon Lord said, "Since I started to write music for the orchestra, somewhere in my thoughts had been the urge to write a piano concerto. Not so much in the traditional . sense of a concerto . but more as a vehicle to express my love for the piano, which I began playing aged six. . (The concerto) would not be for me to play . but for concert pianists . for whom I have unbounded respect and admiration. . I also wanted to celebrate my lifelong love affair with the orchestra, which seems to me perhaps the greatest of 'instruments' . and to marry these two loves of mine in music that would sing from my heart to the heart of this wonderful union that is a concerto. . After a few aborted attempts to begin writing while touring the world with a rock band, in 1998 I came across a poem by D.H. Lawrence called simply Piano, and its effect on me was immediate and profound. The 'I' of the poem seemed to be me. I recognised the childhood that Lawrence described, for it seemed to mirror my own, and the idea of using his images to paint pictures from my own experiences was a persuasive one. . I immediately began to jot down ideas. The experience was made more resonant for me by that marvellous phrase "the boom of the tingling strings" and I decided then and there, that would be the title." Former EMI Debut series artist Nelson Goerner, "a player of exalted poetic verve" (Gramophone), is the soloist in Boom of the Tingling Strings. He rises admirably to the technical challenges of the work, particularly the fiendishly difficult last movement and, at the recording sessions, he moved the composer to tears with his deftness of touch and musical sensitivity.

4.0 out of 5 stars modern classical music February 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a fan of both Deep Purple and classical music, I've collected a number of Jon Lord's classical-oriented works. At the top of the heap I'd put the "Concerto For Group & Orchestra" and "Sarabande", which I find to be great pieces of music combining classical and rock (and some jazz) with strong musical themes, whereas some of his other works don't quite succeed as well for me - "Windows" just seems weird, "Gemini Suite" although pretty good seems a little aimless at times, and "Pictured Within" I found a little too mellow and melancholy.
This work I'd rate about even with Gemini Suite - pretty good, but not totally fantastic. Whereas on the Gemini Suite, I got the impression it was a little rushed in composition, this album seems more to just have the somewhat shapeless/slow-developing musicality of some modern classical music (which is pretty much what it is - not really any rock crossover here, although there's a touch of jazz). It's pretty slow building, and quite engrossing if you're in a patient mood to sit back and take it in, but doesn't have as much of the strong and accessible themes of the aforementioned "Concerto For Group & Orchestra" or "Sarabande".
So, not a bad piece of music, but will appeal more to modern classical music fans (or the prog-rock fans seeking interesting and thoughtful music) than those seeking something like Deep Purple.
