The musical sensation called JON LORD'S CONCERTO FOR GROUP AND ORCHESTRA is truly a legendary musical project, just like its creator, founding member of the famous DEEP PURPLE, JON LORD. Devoted to classical music, Jon Lord devoted himself fully to this project. The idea for CONCERTO FOR GROUP AND ORCHESTRA was born in his head already at the end of the sixties, i.e. at the time of the most famous line-up of DEEP PURPLE (Jon Lord, Ian Gillan, Ian Paice, Richie Blackmoore, Roger Glover) and he succeeded very soon with the band to realize. It premiered in September 1969 in London, in the famous Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
JON LORD won a huge success worldwide with this project. On the 30th anniversary of the premiere, in 1999 the project was revived again at the Royal Albert Hall, in 2002 it was released on DVD and in 2011 it was revised.
Now this famous and completely unique musical project is coming to the Czech Republic! On April 2nd, it will be played in the sports hall of Palacký University in OLOMOUC.
Under the baton of conductor Paul Mann (who has been working in the project since 1999) and with BRUCE DICKINSON (IRON MAIDEN) himself behind the microphone, such personalities as Kaitner Z. Doka (Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Don Airey) – guitar, Bernhard Welz (Jon Lord, Don Airey) – drums, Tanya O'Callaghan (Whitesnake) – bass or John O´Hara (Jethro Tull) – keyboards will perform there with the 78 members of the Philhaormonic Orchestra of Bohuslav Martinů, Zlín.
