One week until Mark Simpson makes his debut performance with the LMP

We are delighted to welcome British clarinettist Mark Simpson, winner of the 2006 BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition, who performs Mozart’s celebrated clarinet concerto, written during Mozart’s miraculously inspired final year. The concert also introduces the LMP’s season-long celebration of Schubert’s ‘local’ connections. Written at the tender age of sixteen, Schubert’s first symphony received its world premiere at the Crystal Palace, at the time considered an exciting ‘new music’ destination.
