London Musical Arts Orchestra

This fascinating Musical Journey through Beethoven’s ground-breaking ‘Eroica’ Symphony is sure to be a completely new experience for all listeners.
Guided by experienced conductor and presenter John Landor, you will be immersed in its musical and historical context and become part of the musical action as the different layers of the music are revealed and its meaning explored.
The first half concludes with a orchestra ‘walkabout’, where the musicians perform extracts spread out among the audience, a thrilling close encounter with the sheer physicality of Beethoven’s musical utterances. By the time you hear the work in full after the interval, you will be sure to greet it as an old friend.
The engagement of the audience in the story of the music and participation with and talent of the musicians truly made it one of the most enjoyable musical experiences we’ve had.
