Synopsis by Mark Deming
In 1969, British hard rockers Deep Purple attempted a trailblazing experiment when they recorded their album Concerto for Group and Orchestra in collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Thirty years later, the group revisited their concerto for the first time in three decades when they performed at London's Royal Albert Hall with the London Symphony Orchestra in the fall of 1999. This video presents the highlights of that evening; along with the three-movement "Concerto for Group and Orchestra," Deep Purple and the LSO perform "Pictured Within," "Wring That Neck," "Ted the Mechanic," "Smoke on the Water," and six others.
