  2. Appalachian Spring - Aaron Copland
  3. Tzigane, concert rhapsody for violin and orchestra - Maurice Ravel
  4. Le tombeau de Couperin - Maurice Ravel

London Medical Orchestra brings a kaleidoscope of timbral colour to their annual summer concert. They are joined by Gavin Davies, following his stunning Mendelssohn concerto last year, for two works for violin and orchestra.

The deep greens and browns of Vaughan Williams’s lament The Lark Ascending paint a picture of the English countryside. By contrast Davies transports us to Bohemia, the fiery reds of Tzigane take on a crystalline translucence in Ravel’s orchestration.

Framing these works, the light gently shifts in Ravel’s Le tombeau de Couperin, while the evening concludes with the bold planes of colour in Copland’s Appalachian Spring.

A feast for the ears - do come!

Refreshments including Pimm's and strawberries will be served in the interval.

The church is 5 mins walk from Tufnell Park - on street parking available

The concert is in support of London's Air Ambulance Service.

London Medical Orchestra
The Orchestra was formed in 1954, consisting mainly of refugee doctors and dentists from central Europe. Conductors have included Norman Del Mar, Colin Davis and Bernard Keefe; and Sir Adrian Boult and Jacqueline du Pré are among past Vice Presidents. Although many present members of the Orchestra are not members of the medical profession, the Orchestra continues to have as its main purpose the supporting of medical charities through fund-raising concerts.
