2021 Spring Concerts

Spring 2021 Streamed Concerts

We are thrilled to return to the Southbank Centre to perform six concerts which will be filmed live and be available for you to enjoy at home for free, released weekly from 24 March on Marquee TV.

Italian maestro Enrique Mazzola opens the season with two programmes including works by Missy Mazzoli, Sibelius, Dvořák and Haydn. We are also joined by conductors Robin Ticciati, Ben Gernon and Sir Mark Elder, and soloists include cellist Steven Isserlis in Dvořák’s Cello Concerto, Denis Kozhukhin in Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ Concerto, and Alexandra Dariescu in Ravel’s brilliant, jazz-influenced Concerto in G.

All concerts will be available to watch on Marquee TV, and will be free to access for 7 days, after which they will be added to the LPO collection of concerts, and accessible to Marquee subscribers. Our full autumn season is also currently available to Marquee TV subscribers.

Make a donation

We believe that music matters. It moves, inspires and excites us and should be accessible to everyone. It is for this reason our performances on Marquee TV are free for everyone to enjoy. However with no current ticket income to support the costs of our work your support is more vital than ever. If you watch our Marquee TV performances, please consider making a donation, if you are able to do so, to help sustain the LPO and our musicians. A donation of £10 or £20 will make such a difference and with your help we will survive and thrive as one of the world’s great orchestras.
