LNSO chamber music. String quartet 3+1

11 Feb
String quartet 3+1 has won public and critical acclaim for its string of performances of lesser-known gems of chamber music. Béla Bartók wrote his Piano Quintet during his early musical career - although an undeniably masterful piece, this is not yet Béla Bartók we know today. Legend has it that Bartók could be barely persuaded not to destroy the composition that for quite a while remained his most popular opus. Sergei Taneyev's Piano Quintet is a classic - an example of monumental, diverse, nearly symphony music, strikingly beautiful and expressive.

Coppélia

12 Feb
Léo Delibes's Coppélia, which is once again returning to the LNO's stage, is a classic reading of the E.T.A.Hoffmann's story The Sandman. The revival of the production - where our troupe's best soloists will perform the story of the young heartbreaker Franz and his beloved, Svanilde - will be comical, colorful, and full of life. The characters enter a whirlwind of misunderstandings when Svanilde's beauty is overshadowed by the magic of the mysterious Doctor Coppélius's daughter, Coppélia.
