Lara Poe shares her experiences of the LSO Panufnik Composers scheme – including rare insights into orchestral playing and what it's like to compose music for the LSO.
On Sunday 4 November the LSO performs James MacMillan’s poignant memorial to the fallen of World War I, All the Hills and Vales Along. The piece sets poetry by the solider Charles Sorley, who was killed in action in 1915. We took a look at how he was affected by the war through his letters and personal correspondance.
We spent some time getting to know Philippe Jordan, Music Director of the Opéra de Paris, and flautist-turned-conductor Jaime Martín, who make their LSO debuts in concerts at the Barbican this month.
