This week, London Mozart Players, the UK’s longest established chamber orchestra, launched ‘At Home with LMP’ an initiative that will help keep audiences connected to music by going virtual. ‘At Home with LMP’ will allow anyone to access and enjoy performances by LMP musicians and associated artists virtually, with a whole catalogue of daily musical treats to keep the music playing through the pandemic.
Launching the first of LMP’s ‘Saturday Sessions’, which will feature a new live Facebook stream each weekend, is acclaimed classical guitarist Craig Ogden who was due to perform the Rodrigo Guitar Concerto with LMP in two concerts this Spring at London’s South Bank Centre and Fairfield Halls, Croydon.
In a live Facebook stream from Craig’s home via London Mozart Players Facebook page at 7pm on Saturday 28th March, Craig will bring the soothing sounds of the classical guitar right into your living room with a relaxing performance of much-loved classics from the guitar repertoire, including music by Scarlatti, Dowland, Coste, Barrios and excerpts from Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez.
With special thanks to London Mozart Players and Music on the Quantocks.
