Product Description

Concerto for Group & Orchestra [Blu-ray]

Amazon.ca

Overshadowed in rock history by the Moody Blues' Days of Future Passed and the symphonic rock of Emerson, Lake, & Palmer, Deep Purple's Concerto for Group and Orchestra is an event that shouldn't be forgotten. Composed by keyboardist Jon Lord, this three-movement concerto begins as an antagonistic contest between Deep Purple and the 80-piece Royal Philharmonic, under the mediating baton of conductor Malcolm Arnold. The second movement finds group and orchestra coming to terms with each other, while the third unites them into an integrated whole. Everybody's evidently mystified when guitarist Richie Blackmore hijacks the first movement with an amazing but unexpectedly extended solo, and it's obvious that some of the tuxedoed players aren't too keen about sharing Royal Albert Hall with long-haired rockers. Still, this remains one of the most remarkable efforts to meld "the best of both worlds," and Lord's jovial commentary track guides the viewer/listener through all the musical hazards and highlights. Originally recorded for British television and superbly remastered for DVD (in Dolby Digital Stereo, Dolby 5.1-channel Surround, or DTS Surround), this premier performance is a must-have for Deep Purple fans, and the casually curious will also be richly rewarded. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I was starting my radio broadcasting career back in 1969. I was still a teenager at the time and was not a classical music fan, yet! When I first heard the Concerto on vinyl for the first time, I knew I had to have it and I eventually bought the CD when it became available. When Deep Purple came out with the 1999 Concerto at the Royal Albert Hall, I was very excited. What a concert! Steve Morse does a remarquable job. And then, the big surprise. The original concert on DVD!!! Goodness, can this be? Yes it's true and it's good. The sound is awsome considering the whole thing was recorded back in 1969. I give it 4 stars out of 5 because of the camera shots. The switcher was not familiar with the music because when Ritchie plays solo, the camera stays too long on somebody else.
Still a must have.

Excellent, Excellent DVD. What a treat. Great piece of music. Loved listening to it in 69. Love it now. I like Deep Purple. I like their sound. This doesn't sound like Deep Purple per say. If you remember they sounded a different couple of ways. This was yet slightly different than those because they are performing this piece. Great musicians. Very satisfying piece of music. Oh yea this is the Ritchie Blackmore version. You know the real Deep Purple guitarist. Great picture and sound quality. Jon Lord's commentary on the menu thing option is very entertaining

Después de escuchar por muchos años la grabación de este concierto en los ya descontinuados discos de vinilo, es un verdadero gusto ver a la banda en sus primeros años y al mismo tiempo escucharla con un sonido extraordinariamente mejorado.
Asimismo, son muy recomendables las escenas de los ensayos previos al concierto. Solo tiene un detalle; una pequeña parte del primer movimiento parece no haberse grabado.
Para todos los seguidores de "Deep Purple", éste debe ser un DVD de colección.
