Editorial Reviews

Jon Lord always wanted a studio recording of the concerto. He finalized his very last mission - the first and only studio recording of the famous Concerto For Group And Orchestra.

Lord assembled guest musicians such as Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson, Joe Bonamassa and Steve Morse in the Abbey Road Studios, to work with his trusted partner, director Paul Mann, on the 2012 version of the legendary concert.

The studio recording of Concerto For Group And Orchestra will now become Jon Lord's legacy for generations to come.
Jon passes from darkness to light says the sober announcement from his family.
This album is a joyful testament of a great musician and fantastic man.

Following the huge demand of the fans, the Concerto now will be made available on a Blu-ray + CD edition, which also includes, the making of as well as in depth interviews with Paul Mann and Marco de Goeij. Exclusive to this format is the new behind the scenes documentary, Up Close & Personal (Orchestral Recording Sessions) which gives an interesting insight into the work of Jon Lord and the orchestra.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good audio, superfluous video... September 12, 2013
Many of the British rock icons that have paved the way for generations of future musicians began their studies as classical students prior to discovering the influences that would turn them from Bach to Blues, Elgar to Elvis, or Beethoven to Chuck Berry. Several of them, however, continued to occasionally straddle the fence of their inspirations, and the musical repertoire benefitted from these compositions. They included the Moody Blues' "Days of Future Passed," and the orchestral rock of Emerson, Lake and Palmer. One of these lesser known, though no less accomplished, works was written by Jon Lord, the founder and organist of the band Deep Purple ("Smoke on the Water", "Highway Star").

Titled, "Concerto for Group and Orchestra," the young Brit created a three movement, 45-minute composition in which the orchestra would be in a musical struggle for superiority against a hard-rock band, originally represented by the members of the Deep Purple. String flourishes, horn tutti and solo clarinet cadenzas pit themselves up against scorching guitar solos, and the signature organ riffs that Lord would subsequently become known.

The debut of Lord's work took place in 1969, with a number of performances taking place within the following year. At that point, however, the parts would mysteriously become lost forever. Little did Lord know that a Dutch composer named Marco de Goeij would solidify his lifelong love of the piece by transcribing it by himself. Fast forward to 1999, and through a combination of determination and fate, de Goeij and Lord were brought together in time to recreate the pages of "The Concerto" in time to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Albert Hall debut of the piece.

Is a real pitty that Jon Lord didn't have the opportunnity to see his final production.

We'll not forgive you Thanks Mr. Lord

4.0 out of 5 stars Classical and Rock Fused September 12, 2013
Verified Purchase
I really like most of this piece. The musicians and the sound quality are outstanding.

The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is because I am disappointed that the disc does not feature the concert itself being performed. It provides a behind the scenes look and an audio only presentation of the piece.

Rest assured that some portions really rock thanks to the incredible Joe Bonamassa!

2.0 out of 5 stars Review Of The Concerto September 7, 2013
By Ray
Having been Deep Purple fans from the beginning of Deep Purple, my partner ordered this bluray, which does NOT have a blu-ray video performance of the Concerto. I have the original CD of the Concerto for Group And Orchestra, so he's returning his bluray copy of this. He's VERY disappointed, since the concerto is his favorite Deep Purple composition. Too bad that Jon Lord apparently could not get the other members of Deep Purple together again to perform this piece, which was magnificent in it's original form.
