Big music in a small venue. Up close in LSO St Luke’s, guest conductor Marta Gardolińska makes the air shake with music by Boulanger, Dalbavie and Tchaikovsky – his volcanic Fourth Symphony.

The orchestra shouts, and a solo flute turns dizzying cartwheels. Savage fanfares sound: and Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony plunges into a life-or-death struggle with the force he called ‘Fate’. And in another world, a young genius distils the vitality of a spring morning into music that glistens like dew.

If this concert sounds colourful, that’s because it is – and up close, in the intimate performance space of LSO St Luke’s, you’ll feel every glint of light and roar of terror. The luminous optimism of the young Lili Boulanger is poles apart from the raw passion and white-hot melodies of Tchaikovsky’s semi-autobiographical symphony, but guest conductor Marta Gardolińska will make them both spring vividly to life – just as the LSO’s Principal Flute Gareth Davies will bring out all the dazzle and daring of Dalbavie’s supercharged 21st-century classic.
