LSO premiere Eloise Gynn commission



On Saturday 10 June 2023, a giant temporary stage will once again host Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra for a free concert for an audience of thousands in one of the world’s most iconic public spaces, Trafalgar Square, and to thousands more watching the live stream on YouTube.


The 2023 BMW Classics concert will open with Igor Stravinsky’s four minute ‘orchestral fantasy’ Fireworks, followed by the first movement of John Adams’ energetic and explosive masterpiece, Harmonielehre.


At the heart of the programme is the world premiere of Eloise Gynn’s new work, Light Dancing, specially commissioned for the concert. This dance inspired piece written for a mixed-ability orchestra brings together LSO musicians with 55 young musicians from east London as part of the LSO On Track partnership, and 18 students from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.


For the final half of the concert, Sir Simon and the LSO will perform two popular French Impressionist masterpieces brimming with orchestral colour, Claude Debussy’s La Mer and Maurice Ravel’s Boléro.


For our audiences around the world, the concert will also be live-streamed on our YouTube channel and then be available on demand for a limited time.
