Jon Lord celebrated as The Composer

A second promo from Celebrating Jon Lord At The Royal Albert Hall has been released, including a clip from the world premiere of a track the late icon wrote with Steve Balsamo.

Last week EarMusic launched a video detailing the half of the April concert dedicated to Lord’s “Rock Legend” career, including performances by Deep Purple, Bruce Dickinson, Glenn Hughes, Rick Wakeman, Micky Moody and others.

The new teaser concentrates on his life as a classical composer and features a section of his piece All Those Years Ago, which had never previously been performed.

Celebrating Jon Lord will be launched on September 26 containing a Blu-ray of the April concert, three CDs, two seven-inch vinyl singles, a shirt, a replica of a page of Lord’s score for Sarabande and a reproduction of the concert programme. Separate Blur-ray, 2DVD, CD and download editions will also be available. Pre-order now.
