Celebrations at the LSO

Having celebrated the 10th anniversary of LSO St Lukes, there is a brace of birthdays coming up at London Symphony Orchestra concerts. On 25 April 2013, John Eliot Gardiner conducts the LSO in a concert which includes Stravinsky's Apollon Musagete and Oedipus Rex with Jennifer Johnston, Stuart Skelton and Gideon Saks, in celebration of Gardiner's 70th birthday. Then on 22 May, Valery Gergiev celebrates his birthday with a concert including Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 2, and act five from Berlioz's The Trojans, plus music by Paganini, Ravel and Sarasate with Leonidas Kavakos (violin) and Alexander Toradze (piano). At next week's performances of Britten's The Turn of the Screw (16, 17 April), the conductor will be Richard Farnes replacing Colin Davis who has been ill. The cast includes Andrew Kennedy, Sally Matthews and Catherine Wyn-Rogers. Further information from the LSO website.
