JON LORD To Compose Concerto For Hammond And Tympani

According to his official website, former DEEP PURPLE keyboardist JON LORD has been commissioned to compose a concerto for Hammond organ and orchestra and with special parts for tympani.

The piece will be premiered with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra with Tom Vissgren on tympani in Oslo, Norway in the spring of 2012.

"It is basically a concerto for Hammond and an orchestra with a very virtuoso tympany part," explains Jon Lord.

"Tom Vissgren and I had become acquaintances, and he had asked me if I would write a tympany concerto. I said ‘I am not up to writing a tympany concerto but how about this…’ I had been thinking for years about writing a Hammond Concerto. Something I could turn up and play as part of a programme with an orchestra. It doesn’t have to be a programme of only my music, just slot me in along next to Mahler and I would be happy. So I thought about that, and told Vissgren that I could write a really virtuoso tympany part to go alongside it. We took the idea to the management of the Oslo Philharmonics and it’s now commissioned for the spring of 2012. I’m getting on well with this and it’s coming along nicely."
