Valery Gergiev, will perform an all-Tchaikovsky programme in London’s
Trafalgar Square on Sunday 22 May, a fifth unison in the
Orchestra’s annual BMW LSO Open Air Classics series, giveaway and open to
all. Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture and Symphony No 4 will be performed
as good as an arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake suite, that will
be played by 42 immature musicians from from a LSO’s On Track programme
and 23 musicians from a Guildhall School of Music Drama
corresponding with members of a LSO. The unison will be presented by
Paul Rissmann.


This is a fifth eventuality in a BMW LSO Open Air Classics series, a
singular and now hotly-anticipated tie in London’s low-pitched calendar,
that any year has seen a ability throng of thousands knowledge the
LSO in Trafalgar Square, totally free. BMW shares a LSO’s belief
that a biggest song should be enjoyed by a biggest array of
people, and partners identical highly-successful outward Opera for All
events in Munich and Berlin.


Dr Ian Robertson, Member of a Board of Management of BMW AG, said:
“It’s good to be celebrating not usually a BMW Group’s centenary but
also a fifth year of a BMW LSO Open Air Classics. I’d like to
unequivocally appreciate a partner LSO for pity a vision. Since starting
a array in 2012, thousands of people have been means to suffer a
unison by a world-class band in a overwhelming open-air
sourroundings of Trafalgar Square. This is what BMW’s cultural
rendezvous is all about – holding exemplary song outward a concert
hall, giving people a eventuality to suffer a humanities without
boundaries. We’re unapproachable to make this occur in a heart of London
year after year.”


Kathryn McDowell CBE DL, Managing Director of a LSO, said: “We are
gay to lapse to Trafalgar Square for a fifth, giveaway concert,
a outcome of a singular partnership with BMW. This year’s event
promises to be truly illusory with an all-Tchaikovsky programme
featuring his 1812 Overture and 4th Symphony. BMW LSO Open Air
Classics is a genuine prominence in a Orchestra’s calendar, for the
players, a vast public of Londoners and visitors, and also for
a immature musicians from a On Track programme in East London who I’m
gratified will lapse this year, behaving song from Swan Lake
corresponding with members of a Orchestra. The LSO is beholden to BMW
for their continued joining to this event, and to a Mayor of
London for his support.”


Boris Johnson, a Mayor of London said: “The LSO concerts in
Trafalgar Square have been delighting Londoners and tourists comparison for
5 years with a smashing preference of song that packs in the
crowds. As a giveaway eventuality in a heart of a collateral it is opening up
exemplary song to a wider audience. It’s illusory that young
musicians have a eventuality to play alongside professionals with
a venerable Gergiev during a helm. we have no doubt that this year’s
eventuality will be intensely popular.”


LSO On Track is a year-round programme delivered in partnership with
a LSO’s song preparation heart partners in a former Olympic Host and
Gateway boroughs in East London. Young musicians from East London,
many from severe backgrounds, are given training by LSO musicians
and via a year a array of moving performance
opportunities, including a eventuality to perform with a LSO in
