8 LONDON MOZART PLAYERS

8 LONDON MOZART PLAYERS PIANO EXPLORED CONCERT SERIES London Mozart Players celebrates its 70th birthday season with an exciting Piano Explored lunchtime series from October 2018 to March 2019 at St John’s Smith Square (SW1). In a whistle-stop hour, Howard Shelley will lead the orchestra in his much loved and hugely engaging repertoire deconstructions, followed by a full performance of the chosen works: and this season he is joined by LMP musicians performing double and triple concerti alongside him at the piano. All lunch time concerts will take place from 13.05 - 14.00. Packed with music to highlight the talent within the LMP, this season includes a sparkling selection of works by Beethoven, Shostakovich, Hummel and Haydn, alongside Mozart, with a few surprises along the way. It’s a superb way to celebrate this significant milestone birthday in the orchestra’s history; the concerts are lots of fun and there’s a real connection between orchestra, soloists and audience. Founded in 1949 by Harry Blech, the London Mozart Players is known for its unmistakable British roots. Over its seventy years at the forefront of London’s music scene, the LMP has developed a reputation for adventurous programming, from Baroque to genrecrossing contemporary music. Acclaimed pianist, conductor and recording artist Howard Shelley has performed worldwide at major venues and with top-flight orchestras, particularly in the combined role of conductor and soloist. Whether you work at Westminster, travel in from the country, or you are taking a break in London, the LMP Piano Explored series is truly the best way to spend a lunch break. The concerts are an hour long, and tickets are just £15, so if you have no time limits, why not grab a bite to eat in the Footstool Restaurant in the crypt at the stunning St John’s, enjoy a sublime concert, and then wander around this iconic historic area with visits to Westminster Abbey or the Houses of Parliament?
