English Symphony Orchestra

The LCMS’s second concert in the Venus Unwrapped series, with the ESO and Kenneth Woods, celebrates not only women in music, but also Czech music and the solo piano. Martinů’s exciting Partita for Strings from 1931 is followed by Mozart’s beautiful C major piano concerto, with the famous pianist Noriko Ogawa. Vítězslava Kaprálová is becoming something of a cult figure in early 20th-century music; born in Brno in 1915, her amazing and prodigious Partita for Piano & Strings dates from 1939, just before the end of her short life at the age of 25. The concert finishes with Dvořák’s ever-popular Serenade for Strings.

Date & time:Sun 28 Apr – 6.30pm
Venue:Hall One
