Lili Boulanger’s impressionistic sound picture of a Spring morning welcomes in Eric Whitacre’s Equus – conducted by Bradley Wilson in his last concert as Conductor in Residence with the LSSO in association with Black Lives in Music – with its soaring melodies punching through the American composer’s dynamic minimalist portrait of horses. Mythical evocation comes in the form of the Water Goblin in one of Dvořák’s much loved late tone poems. The concert ends with Mussorgsky’s much loved Pictures at an Exhibition in Ravel’s popular orchestrated version.

Hailed by Sir Simon Rattle as 'an incomparable ambassador for the dynamism and excellence of British Youth', the LSSO introduces young musicians to the challenges and delights of playing in a large symphony orchestra, reflecting the impact and importance of access to high quality music education in the capital.
