Mendelssohn Symphony No.4 in A major, Op.90 ‘Italian’

London Mozart Players
Mateusz Moleda Conductor
Olivier Stankiewicz Oboe

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 as 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. Our second audience concert will be recorded under Covid-19 restrictions at Croydon’s Fairfield Halls, LMP’s residency for the past 30 years. We can’t wait to get back in the Phoenix Hall to perform for you, and it’s an exhilarating programme with an exceptional soloist!

A chance encounter at the end of World War Two between composer Richard Strauss and a young American solider, a professional oboist in civilian life, planted the seed of an idea that flourished into the finest oboe concerto written in the 20th century. Although seemingly light and playful, Strauss’ Oboe Concerto is exceptionally difficult to perform, with circular breathing a pre-requisite. We are delighted to showcase a young oboist who is destined for a great professional career, YCAT artist Olivier Stankiewicz, who performs the solo, under the baton of conductor Mateusz Moleda. The programme also includes Mendelssohn’s jaunty and optimistic Italian Symphony. We may have one or two other musical treats up our sleeves!
