Our cornerstone event this year is a superb Valentine’s Day concert to be given by the London Mozart Players. This is the oldest professional chamber orchestra in the UK which still performs. In this concert, you will hear them perform seductive serenades by Mozart and Tchaikovsky. They will be joined by violin superstar Tasmin Little, returning to our Festival by popular demand, in a performance of Spring from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, that great collection of concertos which caused such a stir in the early 18th century and which profoundly influenced the music of J.S. Bach. They will also perform together for Elgar’s Salut d’amour which is a must for such an evening and they give a special performance of Roxanna Panufnik’s Four World Seasons.

The London Mozart Players, LMP, was founded in 1949 by Harry Blech to delight audiences with the works of Mozart and Haydn. Known for its unmistakable British roots, the orchestra has developed an outstanding reputation for adventurous, ambitious programming from Baroque through to genre-crossing contemporary music. LMP has enjoyed a long history of association with many of the world’s finest artists including Sir James Galway, Dame Felicity Lott, Jane Glover, Howard Shelley, Nicola Benedetti, John Suchet and Simon Callow. The LMP enjoys an international reputation, touring extensively throughout Europe and the Far East, most recently Dubai and Hong Kong in 2018, and records frequently for Naxos, Chandos and Hyperion Records.

The LMP regularly performs on London’s premier concert platforms, including the Royal Festival Hall, St John’s Smith Square and Cadogan Hall, as well as cathedrals and other concert venues across the UK. LMP is the resident orchestra at Croydon’s Fairfield Hall and will celebrate this venue’s reopening after refurbishment in 2019 with a gala concert which will also mark LMP's 70th birthday. LMP's anniversary year is marked by a wide range of concerts in addition to supporting our Festival, hosted at some of the capital’s top concert venues including performances at Kings Place, Conway Hall and a return to Southbank’s Queen Elizabeth Hall. 

Tasmin Little's multi-award winning and varied career encompasses international concerto and recital performances, master classes, workshops and community outreach work. Her discography and performance schedule reflect her wide-ranging repertoire and she has given numerous World Premiere performances. Four World Seasons by Roxanna Panufnik, was premiered as a live broadcast on the BBC at the start of Music Nation weekend, leading up to the London 2012 Olympic Games. Tasmin has firmly established herself as one of today's leading international violinists. She has performed on every continent in some of the most prestigious venues of the world, including Carnegie Hall, Musikverein, Concertgebouw, Philharmonie Berlin, Vienna Konzerthaus, South Bank Centre, Barbican Centre and Royal Albert Hall, Lincoln Center and Suntory Hall.

She has been awarded many honours including an OBE (for services to music), Hon. RAM and Fellow of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.  She has received Honorary Degrees from the Universities of Bradford, Leicester, Hertfordshire and City of London and also holds the Gold Badge Award for Services to Music.

Tickets to this concert include an invitation to a pre-concert reception, making it the perfect way to celebrate romantically on a cold February evening!
