This CD is brilliance from an amazing musician who will be dearly missed.
The man was a genius in his field. The music is fantastic. I recommend the following.
1. Pour a glass of nice wine
2. Sit back with said glass of wine in hand.
3. Headphones on and press play.
It will be the most relaxing time you will have

RIP Mr Lord

It's a sad day, when you get to hear some great music and realise you'll never be able to see it performed live. May God rest your soul Jon.

This is absolutely brilliant, every aspect works and Bruce Dickinson is a revelation [as part of a brave move to keep most of the other erstwhile members of Deep Purple away from proceedings]... So glad that the original score was recreated and transcribed... Proves without doubt to the classical purists that you don't have to be 150 years old [or dead, or both] to write 'proper' music these days...

Straight to the point:

THE MUSIC:all who read this in order to buy probably know Jon Lord's wonderful music,so no comments about it.

THE PERFORMANCES:the arrangement and the orchestra are ok.There are no surprises.I personally have some doubts about Darin Vasilev's solo.In my opinion it does not very much fit this work.The female voice is an innovation.Some might find it disturbing.

THE 5.1 DVD AUDIO:a complete disappointment.I find this 5.1 dvd audio nearly a fraud.There is no separation of music from the rear speakers.You only get the same things you hear from the front speakers in a very very low volume.In fact I had to put my ear onto the speaker in order to find out whether it played anything.
If you're about to buy the product only for this dvd audio,don't!
Also there is something I have never encountered before.There's no navigation menu on this disc.You only get one picture which directs you to press the <audio> button on your control in order to change from 5.1 to Stereo.

THE SOUND:it could be better.A studio recording of 2011,even of a full orchestra which complicates things a little,should be <cleaner>.In my opinion the sound engineers were people from the classical business and maybe did not know or give special attention to the recording of the rock band.The rock sound suddenly blasts forth and you run for the volume button the first time you listen to the disc.

Music was great but the dissapointment was the 'bonus DVD' which I expected to be video footage of the recording not another version of the same music in 5.3 (no video)

This is a fine recording, nicely crafted and beautifully played but for me it just doesn't have the same impact or togetherness that the original 1969 recording had. It sounds like bits and pieces put together not an entity and the guitars don't work for me. Great players they are, but the different styles don't compliment the rest of the music. Jon's work as usual is sublime. Buy it cos he was important and its interesting, but if you want to hear the definitive version go back to the original '69 recording. its just ace!

I was so excited when I opened this, the new recording of the Concerto and a bonus DVD. The new recording is excellent although burned at a very low volume, but imagine how angry I was when I went to watch the DVD expecting it to be a documentary on the making of the album or such like. It is in fact just the CD again in 5.1. No graphics, not even a montage of stills!!! Save your money and just buy the CD folks.

This is a very good version of Jon Lords Concerto, he brought in a variety of musicians who gel together very well. Sadly Jon passed away soon after finishing it, but at least he went out on a high.
