I had long been a fan of Deep Purple, but had not heard any of their amazing keyboardist, Jon Lord's own classical compositions, so I took a chance on this. Where classical music is concerned, I usually like meaty symphonies with lots of brass, which this is not.
However, I really liked what I heard hear. A completely different aspect to a musician known more widely as a rocker - Deep Purple and Whitesnake this is not. It's a delectate and beautiful composition for flute, piano and orchestra. The RLPO are a very fine ensemble, with a wonderful flautist, and it makes for a very restful listen. The orchestra sound lush and Jon Lord on the piano is marvellous.
