London Firebird Orchestra eagerly awaits its return to Kings Place in collaboration with the London Chamber Music Society. The performance opens with the stimulating energy of Mozart’s Overture to Le Nozze di Figaro complimented by arias from the opera performed by Lisa Rijmer. This followed with pomp and grandeur in Haydn’s magnificent ‘Drumroll’ Symphony no. 103, the penultimate symphony the Grandfather of the Symphony was to compose.
We are delighted to welcome for his Firebird début the acclaimed violinist Benjamin Baker (Winner of the First Prize and Audience Prize of the Windsor Festival International Violin Competition) as soloist in Mendelssohn’s exquisite Violin Concerto – famously described by Joseph Joachim as “the heart’s jewel.”
Jonathan Bloxham returns once again to conduct this special evening at Kings Place – which is not to be missed!
