London Philharmonic returns for its classical seaside season

The world-class London Philharmonic Orchestra is back at the Congress Theatre with another series of six Sunday afternoon concerts.

The orchestra will work with a number of acclaimed conductors, including Vladimir Jurowski, composer Matthew Wood, and Christian Kluxen.

The LPO will welcome back former Principal Flute Jaime Martín who made his conducting debut with the LPO in Eastbourne in 2013 and will close the season on Sunday April 17, alongside rising American star Robert Trevino, and the engaging young conductor Gad Kadosh.

The concerts start this Sunday, October 18, with a performance led by Trevino including a work that unlocked a new emotional power for Rachmaninoff, his Second Symphony,

Also on the programme is Tchaikovsky’s ultra-delicate Rococo Variations for cello and orchestra, performed by rising star Harriet Krijgh, and an overture by Shostakovich full of fun and festivity.
