Recorded on September 24, 1969, at London's Royal Albert Hall, Jon Lord's Concerto for Group and Orchestra really was a meeting of two different worlds. Mixed in both 5.1 surround sound and stereo using the latest digital technology for DVD, the evening is brought to life like never before. A treat for rock fans and classical fans alike, the Concerto has since been performed again by the band with a number of different orchestras around the world to celebrate it's 30th anniversary throughout 1999 and beyond. Here though, for your pleasure, is the original performance of the Concerto.
Recorded live on September 24th, 1969, this concert features heavy metal legends Deep Purple teaming up with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for a specially composed concerto by keyboard player Jon Lord. Marking one of the first occasions in which rock and classical music were combined, this is a landmark show presented here in its entirety.
