5 stars Composed and scored by the genius of Jon Lord I think this is one of the best results of cooperation beween a rock band and an orchestra. According with the intention of Jon Lord, while in the first movement there is not a really amalgam betwen the group and the orchestra and it's possible to hear the antagonism between them, in the following movements he search to fuse them, and the result is very good. There are some magistral pieces of classical symphonic music, also thanks to the conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Malcolm Arnold. Although Ian Gillan intervenes just two times, his work on vocals is magistral: he seems to be really inspired and his singing is full of feeling and emotion. As I've told it surely is one of the best results of cooperation beween a rock band and an orchestra; I think that if you are searching for good works in this directions, between the sixties and the seventies, you should take a look to "Days of future past", Moody Blues, and "Concerto grosso n.1", New Trolls.
