London Mozart Players

Thursday 24 March 2022

The London Mozart Players (LMP), the UK’s longest-established chamber orchestra, was founded in 1949 by Harry Blech to delight audiences with the works of Mozart and Haydn, and the orchestra is known for its unmistakable British roots.

 

Over the last seventy-three years, the LMP has developed an outstanding reputation for adventurous, ambitious programming from Baroque through to genre-crossing contemporary music, and continues to build on its long history of association with many of the world’s finest artists including Dame Jane Glover, Howard Shelley, Nicola Benedetti, Sheku Kanneh-Mason and Michael Collins.

The orchestra enjoys an international reputation, touring throughout Europe and the Far East and records frequently for Naxos, Convivium, Chandos and Hyperion Records.

The London Mozart Players performs on London’s premier concert platforms, including the Royal Festival Hall, St John’s Smith Square and Cadogan Hall, as well as cathedrals and other venues across the UK.

LMP has been the resident orchestra at Croydon’s Fairfield Halls for 33 years, and the ensemble continues to demonstrate a commitment to the borough’s cultural life. LMP is also embedded in the local community with an office at St John the Evangelist, Upper Norwood, where it runs an award-winning programme of initiatives. The orchestra has brought classical music stars Nicola Benedetti and Sheku Kanneh-Mason to SE19 in world-class performances, and has implemented a tailored calendar of events including family concerts and collaborations with local community groups and schools.
