We’re thrilled to be able to announce that Helen & Douglas House’s Patron, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, will be attending the London Chamber Orchestra’s concert on 22nd February at Cadogan Hall for an evening of Mozart, Haydn and Schubert. We are lucky to share The Duchess’s patronage with this wonderful orchestra.
Date: 22nd February 2018
Location: Cadogan Hall, London, SW1X 9DQ
The London Chamber Orchestra will perform uplifting music to celebrate the life-changing work undertaken by Helen & Douglas House and Momiji House.
Continuing the Orchestra’s season-long journey through emotions in music, this concert explores the empathy between three great Austrian composers who supported and championed each other’s music.
Haydn’s own nickname for his Symphony No. 64 was Tempora mutantur (Times change) – perhaps inspired by the work’s radical slow movement which breaks musical rules for emotional effect. The good-natured Piano Concerto No. 17 by Haydn’s great friend Mozart is one of his very finest, and is performed in our concert by much-loved British pianist, Freddy Kempf.
From a slightly later era, Schubert made no secret of his love for the music of Mozart and Haydn, and his high-spirited Symphony No. 55 exudes the influence of both his earlier contemporaries.
The programme will be: Haydn, Mozart, Interval, Schubert.
We’re immensely grateful to the LCO for donating the proceeds from this concert to both Helen & Douglas House and the Japanese hospice, Momiji House, to support our incredible work for terminally ill children and their families.
