Product Description

 
With his legendary organ blues-rock sound Deep Purple’s founder and soul, Jon Lord has influenced decades of rock music. He is with no doubt the pioneer of fusing rock and classical/baroque forms and became one of the most important composers of the last decades while having a major impact on the music business. Jon Lord sadly passed away in 2012.
 
Composed by Jon Lord and the German composer and conductor Eberhard Schoener, ‘Windows’ was recorded live on June 1st, 1974 at the Herkulessaal of the Munich Residenz with the Orchestra of the Munich Chamber Opera conducted by Eberhard Schoener. The band for this special occasion is star-studded with musicians like Jon Lord’s former bandmates David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes as well as Tony Ashton, Ray Fenwick and Pete York.
 
Windows consists of two parts. “Continuo on B.A.C.H” is based on an unfinished fugue by J. S. Bach, which was based on a scale using the notes represented by his own name. Lord and Schoener interpreted and ‘finished’ it. “Window” is based on the idea of a form of chain poetry called Renga, developed during the 14th century in Far-East, where a group of poets co-writing would lock themselves away, writing each verse in turn and continue until the finished product emerged.
