5.0 out of 5 stars Thank Y ou, Lord !!! 1 Nov 2004
Format:DVD
I couldn't help writing a review having seen a half star lacking for this the most wonderful event ...on british amazon ???!!!This is the best way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of the most revolutionary and ground-breaking musical opuses in the world history.For some fans of Deep Purple it seemed that the Concerto for group and Orchestra was underrated, undeservingly forgotten, until this fantastic Albert Hall evening came to prove the opposite. The Concerto alone is quite enough to buy this DVD and tremble from excitement for two hours, having no strength to resist the falling tears... because really it is an ageing of the band in the best sence of the word. They aren't the timid beginners that came to shock the world 30 years ago, not sure where to stand or what to look at... Now they are the mature and worthy musicians who have SHOCKED the world by the FORCE of really NEW, CHALLENGING, and CONQUERING MUSIC. It's splendid to see how the members appear one after another and the atmosphere of the Albert Hall is amazing,...The audience knows well its heroes, and has come to give them truely deserved credits.
In comparison to the premiere performance 30 years ago some solos have been changed, not to the better I think, except Morse's solo in the first Movement being much less in duration and more in the vitality then Blackmore's... Also drum solo in the third movement was shortened. In other cases our ears are somewhat accustomed to the old version. Indeed some sound level faults are obvious, the orchestra sometimes sounds weeker than the band, but although the whole performance is more masterfull, well rehearsed, and besides Mr. Lord have done some orchestration corrections.

5.0 out of 5 stars 30 years after, still in shape!! 1 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
They've lost nothing in 30 years. The only diferences are, Blackmore out, Morse in. The sound is superb, and the musicians more mature. I went to the concert and the atmosphere was incredible. The video features some of the guests songs, like wait a while (Sam Brown), sitting in a dream and love is all (Dio) and pictured within. Then you can watch a jazz version of Wring that neck; the concerto itself separated in 3 movements; ted the mechanic, watching the sky, sometimes i feel like screaming, pictures of home and the final "super-bomb" smoke on the water with everybody singing along. This is, therefore, a valuable album for fans and music lovers. Enjoy it.....

5.0 out of 5 stars "Concerto for Group and Orchestra" and Perfection 13 April 2002
Format:DVD
First of all I have to say that I am not a very big Deep Purple fan. I like them but I own 1 or 2 CDs. This DVD video appart from the other beautiful songs contains one of the masterpieces of (rock) music: "Concerto for Group and Orchestra". This unique piece is performed here for the first time after 30 years in a brilliant way. Don't miss the chance to enjoy this marvelous 50 min. masterpiece. Perhaps you might want to hear to the other (very good indeed) songs too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lord's Concerto stands the test of time 7 Jun 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having bought the original when it was first performed back in 1969 I already knew what a wonderful piece of music the Concerto was. Jon Lord is simply one of the most talented composers of our time, and it's about time that the music industry in this country, both rock and classical, recognises the fact. His subsequent classical work including Sarabande built upon the work of the Concerto and his most recent release "Pictured Within" is stunning.
I couldn't make up my mind about whether to buy the DVD of the original conert, with Malcolm Arnold, or the recent re-working with the LSO. I chose the latter and have no regrets.
This is absolutely amazing. Wonderful filming and all that but the real joy is in the music and musicianship on show. Whilst the Concerto rightly holds pride of place, the other pieces are wonderful to listen to. The Purple boys work their socks off and are joined with quality musicians and quality performances. The sight and sound of Purple, friends and the entire LSO blasting out a joyous version of Smoke on the Water is worth the DVD alone.
Brilliant.

By DF McCleland VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The clash of musical genres is starkly evident in this concert. If one is a fan of Deep Purple or heavy rock in particular but hates music in the classical format, this DVD will not appeal at all.

This concert comprises 3 types of tracks:

o Classic Deep Purple songs albeit with some orchestral accompaniment

o The experimental concerto entitled "Concerto for Group & Orchestra" in 3 movements

o Assorted compositions by Jon Lord of a non rock nature.

The DVD commences with a number of tracks by Jon Lord which were not written together with Deep Purple. Genuine "metalheads" will take umbrage at their inclusion & will take some getting used to although they are all excellent tracks except for "Love is All". All are more in a classical style rather than having a rock flavour.

For me the key pieces are the 3 movements of the Concerto. These were originally written by Jon Lord in 1969 as an experimental fusion of rock & classical music. It was performed twice with the LSO & largely forgotten. Due to pressure from certain quarters for its resurrection, Jon Lord undertook to have it re-performed.

And what a success it was. Two performances were held with the LSO in the Royal Albert Hall in 1999, thirty years since its first and only performance. The musical genius of Jon Lord, Deep Purple's keyboardist | organ player shines through. For me, the third movement is the best with the rock & classical styles meshing seamlessly. Ian Paice, Deep Purple's drummer is involved in a drum solo with the orchestra drummer on the kettle drums to his obvious delight.

At the risk of classical aficionados having apoplexy, I contend that this concerto is any bit as good as the best Concertos by Beethoven such the Egmont or Prometheus.

Deep Purple were my favourite band as a teenager and I still have the original on vinyl. Whilst this is is the 1999 re-run it is still just as enjoyable as the original
