ONLINE CONCERT: A Classical Celebration!

Schumann Cello Concerto in A Major, Op.129 (soloist Maciej Kulakowski)
London Mozart Players
Ruth Rogers director
Maciej Kulakowski cello
filmed at St John the Evangelist, Upper Norwood
Join the LMP online for a celebratory concert, filmed when lockdown eased in September 2020. We open with 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. Filmed before a socially-distancing audience at the stunning Church of St John the Evangelist in Upper Norwood – the London Mozart Players’ home venue and rightly famed for its music, this concert is a real celebration of the best in classical music.
