A world of adventure from musical master storytellers

ELGAR Froissart
MOZART Flute and Harp Concerto
ALWYN Lyra Angelica
R STRAUSS Don Juan
'When chivalry lifted up her lance on high': both Edward Elgar and Richard Strauss were master storytellers, and you can practically smell the testosterone when Strauss's Don Juan leaps into red-blooded life. Elgar's stirring early overture portrays a more courtly world, making it the perfect upbeat to Mozart's stateliest concerto - a delightful showpiece for international harp virtuoso Xavier de Maistre and the LPO's own Principal Flute Juliette Bausor. Then discover one of the real hidden treasures from our Isle of Noises: the neglected, radiantly poetic harp concerto Lyra Angelica by William Alwyn. It's heavenly.

Join us post-concert in the Level 5 Function Room for a free beer at our NOISE Bar, courtesy of Principal Beer Sponsor Heineken. Make sure you have your ticket with you, as it will be checked on the door
