Jon and the Lord Chamber Orchestra has finished the last rehearsal of the work of music that later in the evening would open the concert: “To Notice Such Things”. Solo flutist Trine Knutsen looks at him as he’s stepping down from the grand piano.

This was the opening suite of the album, which was released less than two monts prior to the concert, was a memorial for Jon’s close friend, Sir John Mortimer. Jon had composed and performed the music accompanying Sir John Mortimer for his stage show, Mortimer’s Miscellany.

There is a great interview with Jon about his friendship with Sir John Mortimer, about the suite and the album “To Notice Such Things” and about plans for the future at the website “MusicWeb International“.
