Update from LSO

LSO Concert Wednesday 28 October at LSO St Luke’s

Sir Antonio Pappano has had to withdraw from the above concert due to travel restrictions.

The LSO is very grateful to Kevin John Edusei for agreeing to step in at short notice to conduct the concert. The programme remains unchanged.

Duke Bluebeard’s Castle conducted by Sir Simon Rattle with Gerald Finley and Karen Cargill will be streamed free on LSO YouTube from Sunday 1 November.


Barbican, Sir Antonio Pappano, 1 November

We are sorry to announce that Sir Antonio Pappano has had to withdraw from his performance at the Barbican on 1 November, due to travel restrictions. We are grateful to pianist Julius Drake for stepping in.

The concert, part of the Live from the Barbican series, also features tenor Ian Bostridge, mezzo-soprano Dame Sarah Connolly and the Carducci Quartet. Love, loss, nature and nostalgia unite the evening’s two song cycles, both bursting the boundaries of their chamber forces with operatic intensity: Vaughan Williams’ On Wenlock Edge, a quintessentially English pastoral idyll, and Chausson’s Poème de l’amour et de la mer (here in first UK performance of a chamber version by Franck Villard), the epitome of sophisticated French polish.
