Remembering Jon Lord at 80

Jun. 01, 2021

Jon Lord would be celebrating his 80th birthday on June 9. His name stands for the thrilling interaction between rock and classical music for which he possessed an exceptional talent, unlike any other artist. During his time with Deep Purple, he was already integrating traditional techniques into his wild and virtuoso style on the Hammond organ and creating musical bridges such as the legendary Concerto for Group and Orchestraperformed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. In his later years, Lord turned towards classical composition with even greater intensity, publishing works such as the piano concerto Boom of the Tingling Strings and a suite for strings entitled Disguises. We look back on this shared time with joy and gratitude.


(Concerto for Group and Orchestra by Jon Lord, performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Malcolm Arnold)
