Spohr, The Last Judgement

Mark Austin, conductor

A rare performance of Spohr’s oratorio, hugely popular with audiences in the nineteenth century until the First World War. Spohr was a leading musician of his age – virtuoso violinist, a friend of Beethoven, the first conductor to use a baton, and the inventor of rehearsal letters. His unique blend of Romanticism and Handel-like choral writing is now being rediscovered by performers and audiences alike.

TICKETS: £25, £21, £18; students: £10; available from LSO St Luke’s Box Office. Tel: 020 7638 8891; web: www.barbican.org.uk or lso.co.uk/whats-on

Please note: this concert will also be performed on Sunday, 6 March at West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge
