Classic nights with London Philharmonic Orchestra
The London Philharmonic Orchestra will stage two concerts in the city.
The orchestra was founded by English conductor and impresario Sir Thomas Beecham and Malcolm Sargent, an English conductor, organist and composer, in 1932. The current principal conductor and artistic advisor is Vladimir Jurowski, whose concerts with the LPO are highly praised for their imaginative programming and unique energy.
An internationally famous artist, Jurowski joined the LPO in 2007. The Financial Times once noted the Russian and British conductor has created “a period of unrivalled adventure, taking audiences to places other orchestras never reach.”
The LPO has had its own record label, issuing living records of concerts since 2005. It has also played on numerous film soundtracks, including “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962), the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy (2001-2003) and “The Hobbit” (2012-2014).
On March 16, the orchestra and soloist Julia Fischer, a German classical violinist and pianist, will perform classic masterpieces including Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, Op. 28 by Richard Strauss, Violin Concerto in E Minor, Op. 64 by Felix Mendelssohn and Symphony No.2 in c minor, WAB 102 by Anton Bruckner.
On the second day, the program will feature Edward Elgar’s Violin Concerto in B minor, Op.61 and Johannes Brahms’s Symphony No.2 in D major, Op. 73.
