Over the weekend of 25–27 September, LSO musicians gave performances all across London (and beyond) as part of our very first LSO Local weekend. From care homes to cafes, churches to warehouses, this player-led project brought music to local communities.

'During September and October I'm at LSO St Luke's three times. I'm thinking of taking an apartment nearby actually.' We were thrilled to take the opportunity recently to sit down with Peter Donohoe and talk about his return to performing after lockdown, plus a Piano Concerto that lifts the spirits!
After six months away, we're delving headfirst into the music of Johannes Brahms as BBC BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concerts return to LSO St Luke's this September. Tracing the influence of the Romantic titan's music on the generations that would follow, we're welcoming a roster of extraordinary musicians, including the Heath Quartet, who make their return to the Jerwood Hall on Friday 25 September.
Ahead of the concert, we asked how it feels to resume live performances as a quartet, and what the music they've selected means to them.
