Earlier this year, former DEEP PURPLE keyboardist Jon Lord performed a new composition — actually a work in progress — titled "Air on the Blue String" at "Zermatt Unplugged". Swiss TV filmed the show and you can watch the new track at JonLord.org."Air on the Blue String" was in part inspired by a conversation Jon Lord had with cellist Matthew Barley about classical musicians and improvisation. Barley played cello on the Durham Concerto and is a teacher as well as a cellist. Commented Jon Lord: "Matthew's a great believer in improvisation. He's very interested in taking young classical musicians out of the conservatoire mindset and trying to make them think in a bigger picture. Many of them leave music school as brilliant technicians but with not much idea about how to play anything other than exactly what is written on the page." Read more from JonLord.org.
