LMP is back, performing the best in classical music to a live audience! Due to the restrictions imposed by Covid-19 we are taking our Autumn 2020 concerts online in our ‘Classical Club’ which launches at the end of September. We’d love as many of you as possible to be in our socially-distanced audiences for the concert recordings, as nothing beats performing to a live audience. Our first concert will be recorded under Covid-19 restrictions at LMP’s home at the church of St John the Evangelist in Upper Norwood, London SE19. Do join us as we reunite players and audience in this gorgeous church for this thrilling programme!
Our first concert kicks off with a truly celebratory work, Prokofiev’s effervescent ‘Classical’ Symphony, which cleverly juxtaposes 20th-century style with the traditional four-movement symphony – with some added parody and humour. This is contrasted with Schumann’s masterful Cello Concerto, performed by talented young cellist Maciej Kulakowski. A hugely romantic work, this gorgeous concerto is full of passionate melodies that soar against an unobtrusive orchestral accompaniment. There will also be one or two other musical surprises in store!
