About

London Mozart Players

Chamber

  • Founded in 1949 by Harry Blech as the UK’s first chamber orchestra, the London Mozart Players has achieved international renown for its concert performances and CD recordings of the core Classical repertoire. The Oxford Times commented on a recent performance: “Polished and meticulous playing from the London Mozart Players… every note a rediscovered treasure.”

  • 伦敦莫扎特合奏团是1949年由哈利·布莱彻建立的英国第一个室内乐团,乐团由于他们的音乐会演奏和CD录制在国际上享有盛誉。牛津的《时代》曾经评论他们的演奏:“伦敦莫扎特合奏团的演奏精致、优雅,每个音符都是一枚值得珍藏的珍宝”。

  • Principal Conductor Gérard Korsten continues the strong Classical tradition begun by Blech, and developed by past Music Directors including Jane Glover and Matthias Bamert, and Conductor Laureate, Howard Shelley, continues a 25 year association with the LMP.

    In addition to core Classical repertoire, the LMP plays an active part in contemporary music, giving many world premières and commissioning new works by, in recent years, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Tarik O’Regan and Sally Beamish, and in March 2011 appointed Roxanna Panufnik as Associate Composer. In addition to their mainstage concerts in London at St John’s Smith Square, and Fairfield Halls, Croydon, the orchestra is engaged in an extensive and highly regarded education, community and audience development programme, working in several outer-London boroughs, as well as in rural areas across the UK.

    Touring has been a major part of the orchestra’s schedule, and Intermusica is delighted to have toured the orchestra to China in May 2014 for four concerts, which were regarded by the musicians as a series of concerts that “transformed” the orchestra.

  • 首席指挥Gérard Korsten继承了布莱彻开创的、由过去的几位艺术总监Jane Glover和Matthias Bamert共同打造的古典传统。而指挥助理Howard Shelley一直与LMP保持长达25年的合作关系。


    除了核心的古典音乐演出,LMP同时也演奏现代的音乐作品,举办了一系列的世界首演、介绍新兴的音乐作品等。Peter Maxwell Davies爵士,Tarik O’Regan 和Sally Beamish于2011年3月任命Roxanna Panufnik作为乐团的作曲家。除了在伦敦圣约翰·史密斯广场、Fairfield Halls, Croydon举行的主场音乐会之外,LMP 还在伦敦郊区、乡村区域等地参与了一系列非常具有教育意义、社会公益性质的发展项目活动。


    巡演也是乐团的一项常规日程。Intermusica与乐团合作并成功地举办了2014年5月在中国的巡演,这一系列的巡演被乐团艺术家们认为在某种程度上转变了乐团的演奏风格。

Past tour
China debut
Asia, May 2014
Intermusica tours the London Mozart Players to China for four performances with conductor Gérard Korsten and an all-Mozart programme.

The musicians also documented the tour online and their experiences of each concert. Playing to a sold-out hall at Beijing’s National Centre for Performing Arts was a particular highlight: “the atmosphere is electric and the orchestra responds. Jetlagged, dehydrated and knackered the players are magnificent.”

While each night of the tour saw the orchestra perform to an audience of different characteristics, the number of children at each concert was striking and something the players said was “wonderful to see”.

At the end of the tour, the musicians reflected on a series of concerts that “transformed” the orchestra:

“The musicians are tired but happy. Everyone has played an important part in its success. The tour has transformed the orchestra. It’s given it confidence and enthusiasm for the future. LMP is back in business and it’s here to stay. A new management, a new vision and a sense of purpose...
The team at Intermusica, especially the wonderful Erin and Grace, took it all in their stride. Calm, good humoured and comfortable in the company of tired, emotional musicians they were consummate professionals. Thank you Intermusica, we love you! Can we do it again please...?”
