Mendelssohn Piano Concerto No. 1
Beethoven Symphony No. 2
Isata Kanneh-Mason piano
London Mozart Players
Stephanie Childress conductor
The London Mozart Players are thrilled to be returning to the concert platform as lockdown eases, with a live audience! Charismatic young pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason, the eldest of the Kanneh-Mason siblings, and acclaimed conductor Stephanie Childress join the LMP for a concert programme that fizzes with life-affirming exuberance.
Beethoven’s majestic Symphony No. 2 takes the orchestra on a journey of expression and invention from its opening through to the ravishing finale – complete with a magnificent coda that ends the work with a flourish of timpani- and trumpet-laden triumph.
But the spotlight is on our soloist Isata Kanneh-Mason, who performs Mendelssohn’s First Piano Concerto, a showcase of captivating melodies and glittering passagework that will highlight the prodigious talent of this virtuoso performer. A BBC Young Musician finalist, four-time winner of the Royal Academy Iris Dyer Piano Prize (among many other prizes) and multi-scholarship winner, Isata is much in demand in concert halls around the UK and abroad, and LMP musicians are hugely looking forward to performing alongside her.
‘She is a pianist who makes lines sing beautifully and virtuosic passages dance, finding intimacy and eloquence at telling moments…’ (BBC Music Magazine)
