Jon Lord left us with an extensive music legacy. I have been spending time this week digging into the expansive music repertoire he created in collaboration and solo efforts. I started with the Deep Purple albums but soon moved up to his Orchestral music compositions.
As Jon Lord stated …write the kind of music that was more and more in my heart.
I have become enraptured with Concerto For Group And Orchestra . The 1969 performance by Deep Purple and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Malcolm Arnold was the first ever combination of rock music and a complete orchestra.
In October 2012, a studio version of the Concerto for Group and Orchestra was released.
