    London Medical Orchestra welcomes you to a Summer concert with something to delight every listener!


    • Emmanuel Chabrier - Joyeuse Marche

    • Ludwig van Beethoven - Violin Concerto in D major Op 61: Soloist Emmanuel Bach

    • Jean Sibelius - Symphony No 7 in C major Op 105


    Conductor: Oliver Till
    Leader: Tina Bowles

    Emmanual Chabrier's playful Joyeuse March provides a jolt of electricity to start, and is followed by Ludwig Van Beethoven's Violin Concerto with soloist Emmanuel Bach (winner of the 2018 Royal Overseas League Strings solo section). A true turning point in the genre, this concerto famously starts with four solo notes from the timani, and ends with a toe-tapping, rustic dance along with hunting calls from the french horns.

    The second half features a single work; Jean Sibelius's 7th and final symphony. Sketched over a period of 9 years (which included World War One, Finnish Civil War, and downward turns for Sibelius's alchoholism and debts) this work stretched the idea of what a symphonic experience could be. Through condensing the drama to a single movement, and being a 'slave' to his musical ideas, Sibelius manages to create a scene that encompasses a massive scale of emotions despite its short duration, and reaches a trimphant resolution. Is this the 20th Century's most uplifting symphony?
