BIOGRAPHY

Founded by Harry Blech in 1949 as the UK’s first chamber orchestra, the London Mozart Players (LMP) is internationally renowned for its live performances and CD recordings, both of the core Classical repertoire and of contemporary music. It has premiered new works by composers including Michael Nyman, Cecilia McDowell, Fraser Trainer and Lynne Plowman. The LMP has performed with many distinguished conductors, including Sir John Barbirolli, Sir Mark Elder, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Sir Charles Mackerras, Sir Roger Norrington and Sir Georg Solti. Former Music Directors include Andrew Parrott, Matthias Bamert, Jane Glover and Harry Blech. David Juritz has been Leader since 1991. Since 1989, the LMP has been Resident Orchestra of Fairfield and the London Borough of Croydon, where it undertakes concerts and education and community activities. It has regularly performed at the South Bank Centre and the Barbican, and recently at Cadogan Hall and St John’s, Smith Square. Further afield, the LMP has appeared in festivals and concert series throughout the UK, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Holland, France and Ireland. The orchestra’s 60th anniversary is marked during the 2008/09 season by special concerts in Wigmore Hall, London and Fairfield Hall, Croydon. Among the orchestra’s many recording projects are piano concerti by Hummel and Mozart with Howard Shelley for Chandos and its continuing acclaimed Contemporaries of Mozart series with Matthias Bamert, which numbers over twenty CDs.
