The London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Valery Gergiev, will perform an all-Tchaikovsky programme in London’s Trafalgar Square on Sunday 22 May, the fifth concert in the Orchestra’s annual BMW LSO Open Air Classics series, free and open to all.
Tchaikovsky’s spectacular 1812 Overture and Symphony No 4 are performed as well as an arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake suite for which 42 young musicians from East London from the LSO’s On Track programme, and 23 musicians from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama play side-by-side with members of the LSO. The concert is presented by Paul Rissmann.
The concert is the fifth event in the BMW LSO Open Air Classics series, a unique and now hotly-anticipated fixture in London’s musical calendar which each year has seen a capacity crowd of thousands of Londoners and visitors experience the LSO in the heart of London completely free and open to all.
