The LMP returns for their regular appearance at the East Finchley Arts Festival. Over the years the LMP has premièred several works by the Festival Director, Geoffrey Hanson, and this concert will include his new work Death be not Proud.
This new work, a large‐scale composition for vocal soloists, chorus, organ and orchestra, draws together visionary poetry on the subject of life, death and the afterlife, concluding with a setting of John Donne’s transcendental ‘Death be not Proud’.
It also includes poems by Shelley, Keats, Tagore, Prudentius and Tennyson.
Young prizewinning Lithuanian pianist Ignas Maknickas will perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.23 in A major, and the concert opens with Debussy’s settings for a cappella chorus of texts by Charles d’Orleans, performed by the London Ripieno Singers.
