  1. Concerto for cello and orchestra in E minor Op 85 - Sir Edward Elgar
  2. Symphony No 4 in E minor Op 98 - Johannes Brahms

London Medical Orchestra is delighted to present this really special evening of two works, each among the most loved of the classical repertoire.

Elgar’s lyrical and passionate Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85, his last notable work, was composed in the aftermath of WW1. It was then virtually ignored until the 1960s, when Jacqueline du Pré's recording caught the public imagination and became a classical best-seller. We will be treated by London Medical Orchestra principal cellist Josh Salter.

Brahms's beautiful Symphony No 4 in E minor was his last symphony. Rich in allusions, most notably to various Beethoven compositions, it contains some of the darkest and deepest music of the 19th century.

Refreshments will be served in the interval.

We recommend reserving your tickets in advance.

Profits from the evening will be donated to Arts 4 Dementia, empowering people living with dementia in the community through artistic stimulation.

The church is 5 mins walk from Tufnell Park. On street parking available.

The London Medical Orchestra was formed in 1954, consisting mainly of refugee doctors and dentists from central Europe. Conductors have included Norman Del Mar, Colin Davis and Bernard Keefe; and Sir Adrian Boult and Jacqueline du Pré are among past Vice Presidents. While orchestra membership is no longer restricted to the medical profession, the Orchestra continues to support medical charities through fund-raising concerts.
