5.0 out of 5 stars Lord of Contemporary Classical Music, 9 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: To Notice Such Things (Audio CD)
I found the Jon Lord's Durham Concerto really good and very enjoyable but not great music so I was interested to see if this was more of the same. It isn't - it is a very considerable step forward. It is extremely good listening with some fascinating melodies and orchestration,with a real depth of feeling and intensity - it is dedicated to the late, great John Mortimer. It is also great fun in places, with some nice little references to other composers - I'll say no more - see if you can recognise them! All in all, this is a really first class CD which I strongly recommend to anyone who is interested in and wants to support contemporary English classical music. The best recommendation I can give is that is now in my car and is my choice of listening on the morning commuting. Very few CDs have earned that place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than expected!!, 24 April 2010

I have enjoyed this CD over and over again. My expectations were high, but this album is even better that I expected.
The flute really paints the picture of a person talking. My favourite part is "The Stick dance".
You really hear the love that Jon Lord felt for Sir Mortimer. I hope it will get more attention in the Netherlands on radio and tv.

I bought the Durham Concerto some time ago not least because I love the sound of the Northumbrian Pipes. I thought Jon Lord's evocation of Durham was very enjoyable. This was not profound music by any means. "To Notice Such Things" is very easy on the ear and most listenable as well, again without creating any great depth of feeling. However, I have played the CD a number of times without tiring of it, so he is obviously striking the right notes for this listener at least!
