The movie Chevalier popularised the incredible life story of Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, but his music is even more exciting, and today it’s just the start of an adventure that begins in 18th-century Paris, and ends with the glorious melodies of Dvořák’s ‘New World’ Symphony. It’s popular for a reason, but for pure elegance and enchantment it’s hard to top Mozart’s Concerto for Flute and Harp, performed by the LPO Principal Flute Juliette Bausor plus the incredible Alexander Boldachev – a harpist with the charisma of a rock star. LPO 2024/25 Fellow Conductor Matthew Lynch completes a dream team: this should be magical.

‘Boldachev’s music is as boundless as his traveling.’
