Product Description

Filmed on the closing night of this year s Montreux Festival on July 16, this concert features Deep Purple playing their classic hits with the accompaniment of a full symphony orchestra conducted by Stephen BK Bentley-Klein. The orchestral arrangements give an added depth and range to the familiar songs and the band, who are clearly enjoying the experience, deliver one of their finest performances. With a career stretching back into the late sixties and global album sales in excess of 100 million, Deep Purple need no introduction. They continue to record and perform around the world on an ongoing basis and remain of the finest hard rock bands on the planet as this live DVD clearly shows. Bonus Features Deep Purple interviewed in depth in Montreux

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 1 Dec 2011
By R. Dunn
Format:DVD
I was in Glasgow to see Deep Purple and the orchestra perform this show, the first time I have seen them since Steve Morse joined. I knew that there was no way we were going to get Made in Japan II, but as a fan of their more recent albums I was interested to see what they sounded like.

I needn't have worried - sure Ian Gillan can't hit the high notes any more (and sensibly didn't try), there was no drum solo and the wilder excesses of the Blackmore/Lord double act were nowhere to be seen, but what a show. The orchestra filled out and enhanced the sound, Roger Glover and Ian Paice are surely the greatest rhythm section in rock history, and the 'new' boys Steve Morse and Don Airey sure can play.

The set list was a bit light on the new stuff for my liking, but it was billed as the 'Songs that Built Rock' tour so it pretty much delivered on that. I was delighted to hear Hard Lovin' Man and No One Came, and to open the encore with Hush was just a sheer joy.

At their prime? Possibly not. A band comfortable with each other, playing classic songs fantastically well and having a great time? You betcha.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Gig 21 Nov 2011
Format:DVD
It is a matter of opinion, but I think Deep Purple are still a top top band and are still fresh despite their 40+ years history. They have put out some great albums since their 'classic' period, which varies depending on who you speak to, Rapture of the Deep, Bananas and Perpindicular to name but three. This concert cover all the standards and some later offering. Having a full orchestra gives everything a new lease of life and the interaction with Steve Morse and Don Airey is superb. The orchestra are used to fill and supplement and this is in no way OTT, in fact they don't accompany on every song. This is a great concert and they clearly enjoyed it. I can't way to see them in Manchester next week. Deep Purple sadly wont go on forever, but their misic will. A great DVD!

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Really good sound. Interesting combination. Not classical the orchestra compliments Deep Purple. All the classics and what a guitarist is Steve Morse.
