Due to the impact of Lockdown2 5 November – 2 December 2020 the LSO has made slight alterations to the scheduled programme.

The Orchestra will continue to perform and record a symphonic and lunchtime chamber concert each week at LSO St Luke’s. However, there will be no audiences for these concert recordings.

A number of conductors not based in the UK have encountered problems with travel, so have regrettably had to withdraw from their scheduled concerts. 

So the November/early December schedule is:

Tuesday 17 November 6.30pm

available live and on demand at globalconcerthall.com Idagio

Haydn Sinfonia Concertante in B-flat Major
