2. The Lord Chamber Orchestra

Jon Lord and the Lord Chamber Orchestra

Jon Lord and the Lord Chamber Orchestra

The orchestra was put together for the concert, and consisted of highly qualified musicians. Most of them from the Trondheim Soloists (Trondheimsolistene) and the Trondheim Symphonic Orchestra (Trondheim Symfoniorkester, TSO), as well as some very promising music students.

The Trondheim Soloists should be well known to fans of Jon Lord. In 2003, they played on the same stage with Jon Lord on the concert which Jon later referred to as a “life changing experience”.  This concert was Jon Lord’s first big concert after he left Deep Purple to concentrate on his orchestral music in 2002. And it was the concert which gave him the confidence to really pursue this path further.

Hot on the heels of this concert, the Trondheim Soloists played on Jon Lord’s first solo album after leaving Deep Purple, “Beyond the Notes” from 2004. They also toured Europe with Jon in 2004/2005. One of the shows can be seen on the excellent “Beyond the Notes, Live” DVD.
