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; live music needs a live audience! Our third concert in the series where we can accommodate an audience will be recorded under Covid-19 restrictions at the beautiful baroque gem that is St John’s Smith Square, one of LMP’s favourite concert halls. And we have a terrific concert for you, with an exceptional soloist.
The musical celebrations to mark Beethoven’s 250th anniversary year were put on hold with the arrival of Covid-19, but we can all enjoy a late salute to the musical genius in November, when LMP performs Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture and his Violin Concerto. The Overture was inspired by Heinrich von Collin’s play Coriolan, rather than Shakespeare’s tragedy, and the music reflects the contrasting moods in the story – Coriolan’s aggression and his mother’s gentle pleading. Beethoven’s Violin Concerto is one of his most serene works, reflecting the composer’s relative personal happiness at the time. This revolutionary concerto takes us on a journey different from any violin concerto that preceded it: from a lyrical first movement, to a larghetto second movement and finally, a joyous rambunctious finale. It’s a hugely satisfying masterpiece that perfectly displays Beethoven’s genius. We welcome rising star and YCAT artist Jonian Ilias Kadesha as soloist for this final concert of the series. PLUS there may be one or two extra musical flourishes!
