‘The best lunch-break you’ve ever had.’ — International Piano
Designed for everyone from city workers and resident Londoners to holiday-makers day-trippers, London Mozart Players’ Piano Explored is the perfect addition to your lunch-time. In one whistle-stop hour, pianist and conductor Howard Shelley takes you on an exciting deconstruction of some of classical music’s most recognised works for piano.
In our 17/18 season, audiences will uncover the anguish of Shostakovich, reminisce on a classic love story that spiralled Schumann to global success, delve into the grandeur of Mendelssohn in an exclusive two-part mini-series, whisk through Saint-Saens’ rollercoaster-esque creative process and dive into the explosive mind of Grieg.
