LPO - Live and Local and in space

Galileo probe deployed 1989 - NASA
The London Philharmonic Orchestra is taking itself out of London for a short UK tour, 'Live and Local' in May and June this year, visiting Bradford (7 May), Blackburn (8 May), Liverpool (23 June) and Manchester (26 June). Tickets for the concerts will be priced at just £15. In Bradford and Blackburn, Jaime Martin will conducts the orchestra in a programme which includes Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez and Fantasia para un Gentilhombre with Milos Karadaglic as the guitar soloist. Then in Liverpool and Manchester, Lawrences Renes conducts a space-themed programme with John Adams's Short Ride in a Fast Machine, Strauss's Also sprach Zarathustra and Holst's The Planets accompanied by high-definition NASA film footage. 

The films, The Planets - An HD Odyssey and The Earth - An HD Odyssey  are productions of Houston Symphony, directed by Duncan Copp. The Earth - An HD Odyssey will be receiving its European premiere and it will be the first time that the two films have been shown together with live music. You can preview the films on the Opus 3 Artists website. Further information on the tour from the London Philharmonic Orchestra's website.
