Rock ‘n’ Roll in Four Movements

Jon Lord: 9 June 1941 – 16 July 2012BBC Radio 4 has aired a programme on fusion of rock and classical music titled Rock ‘n’ Roll in Four Movements. It prominently features Concerto for Group and Orchestra, with all the Big Three keyboard players of the classic rock — Jon Lord, Rick Wakeman and Keith Emerson — being interviewed. Jon’s contribution is from his last interview conducted just a week before his death.

The programme was on the air yesterday, August 23, and is available for replay until noon BST, August 30. (BBC’s iPlayer requires Flash plugin.)

Thanks to DPAS and Daniel Bengtsson for the info.

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the programme which spoke volumes about the concerto and hearing Jon speaking personally about his concerto and how the recent recording, which I hope was completed and will be ready for release soon, moved him “hearing what he heard in his head all those years ago”.
    It was also interesting hearing from Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman speaking about their experiences combining Rock & Classical styles.
    Jon was a special musician and a wonderful person but his music will be ever present and will remind us of how privileged were are to have been present at this time and felt the power of his music and had been moved by his presence, personality and his performances.
