  1. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 1 in G minor Op 25 - Felix Mendelssohn
  2. Symphony No 2 in D Op 36 - Ludwig van Beethoven

The London Mozart Players are thrilled to be returning to the concert platform as lockdown eases, performing with charismatic young pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason, the eldest of the Kanneh-Mason siblings. The conductor Stephanie Childress joins the LMP for a concert programme that fizzes with life-affirming exuberance.

Beethoven’s majestic Symphony No. 2 takes the orchestra on a journey of expression and invention from its opening through to the ravishing finale – complete with a magnificent coda that ends the work with a flourish of timpani- and trumpet-laden triumph.

But the spotlight is on our soloist Isata Kanneh-Mason, who performs Mendelssohn’s First Piano Concerto, a showcase of captivating melodies and glittering passagework that will highlight the prodigious talent of this virtuoso performer. A BBC Young Musician finalist, four-time winner of the Royal Academy Iris Dyer Piano Prize (among many other prizes) and multi-scholarship winner, Isata is much in demand in concert halls around the UK and abroad, and LMP musicians are hugely looking forward to performing alongside her.

There will be two concerts on the same day to accommodate social distancing, 4pm & 7.30pm.

This concert will be filmed for later release on the LMP website.

As part of its 100k Challenge (to reach 100,000 children and young people through music in 2021), LMP is working with schools and music hubs across the UK to make its four 'Spotlight On...' concert films (also featuring Jess Gillam, Sheku Kanneh-Mason and Leia Zhu) available to schools for a limited time, for free, along with listening guides for different age groups. If you would like your schools to be part of this initiative, please contact Tegan Eldridge at LMP via tegan@lmp.org for more information.
