Listing ALL London's live music


Classical

Grand Passions, High Ideals

Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall, SE1 8XX, [Venue Details]

The London Philharmonic Orchestra shines a light on incandescent works by Mendelssohn and Wagner, bookending a world premiere by Vijay Iyer.

Only the young Felix Mendelssohn could have taken a subject like the Reformation and turned it into music as radiant and as stirring as his Fifth Symphony.

And perhaps only Vijay Iyer – described by the New York Times as ‘social conscience, multimedia collaborator, rhapsodist and multicultural gateway’ – could take the refugee testimonies of Human Archipelago and transform them into a cello concerto like no other.
