Wiesbaden tribute to Jon

Wiesbaden Pop meets Classics (w/tribute to Jon Lord) flyer; image courtesy of Wiesbadener OrchestervereinLast year Wiesbadener Orchesterverein and Jon Lord were planning a special performance of the Concerto for group and orchestra at the historical Kurhaus in Wiesbaden, Germany. The hall was already booked and tickets already went on sale when Jon was diagnosed with cancer. After careful consideration, the whole idea had to be scrapped.

Nevertheless, the orchestra wanted to pay a special tribute to the Maestro, and will be performing Sarabande in his honour at their first Pop meets Classic event in December.

What: A night of music from The Beatles, Joe Cocker, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Jon Lord of course; plus popular music from cinema and ballet
Who: Wiesbadener Orchesterverein conducted by Frank Segner; with Lothar Pohl, Porky Kronier, Tom Woll, Michael Stein, and others
When: December 15, 2012 at 20:00 (doors open at 19:00)
Where: Friedrich von Thiersch Saal, Kurhaus, Wiesbaden, Germany
Tickets: €25-89 online or at the Wiesbaden Tourist Infromation office on Marktplatz 1

Note: just the title track from Sarabande will be performed, not the whole album.

Thanks to Axel Dauer and Stephan Fischer for the info.

    Can never get enough new information about jon, it’s medicine to the soul. Speaking of ( Sarabande ), i was just listening to that album the other night. Hard to believe that is almost forty years since it was released. Every song is a masterpiece originally done by ( Bach ) as a barogue dance suite, redone beautifully by jon lord and a group of professional musicians. including mark nauseef, andy sommers, paul karass, pete york & the philharmonia hungarica. My personal favs are the title track sarabande, boure & pavane.
