John Landor Director
American-born British conductor John Landor has been Music Director of London Musical Arts Orchestra since its formation in 1985.
He has also conducted at major London venues such as the Queen Elizabeth Hall and St. John’s Smith Square and worked with international soloists Hu Kun, Raphael Wallfisch, Alexander Baillie, Jill Gomez, Nicola Benedetti and many of Britain’s finest early musicians.
He is frequent guest conductor abroad, performing and recording in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Romania, Poland and South Africa.
John Landor brings to his work both intimate knowledge and wide practical experience of a wide range of musical styles from his educational background at Westminster Cathedral Choir School, Oxford University, the Royal Academy of Music in London and the St Petersburg Conservatoire where he studied with the legendary Ilya Musin. These include core symphonic repertoire, early music, contemporary music, opera/operetta and choral-orchestral works.
He is also a composer, arranger and an experienced and popular presenter of educational concerts for both children and adults.
John has recorded several CD’s for Pickwick Records. In 2001 he was elected an Associate of London’s Royal Academy of Music in recognition of his achievements.
This concert includes John Landor’s entertaining and informative Meet the Music, an optional interval event where you can explore the music further and experience our thrilling ‘orchestra walkabout.’
