A trio with LSO Musicians Rebecca Gilliver and Juliana Koch, and pianist Michael McHale, closes our 2021 series of Summer Shorts with music by Robert Schumann and Nadia Boulanger. They end the programme with Prokofiev's Violin Sonata No 2, which begins gently, before hurtling towards a thrilling finale.

Our Summer Shorts series will take place at LSO St Luke's every Friday this August. We'll be opening the doors for 45-minute performances presented by LSO musicians, with music that crosses genres and generations. There will be opportunities to ask the musicians your burning questions and chat to the players.

Everyone is welcome, including families.

This concert will be performed at 11am and 1pm on Friday 27 August.
