Hosted by The LSE Arts Lunchtime Concert Series

Shaw Library, 6th Floor, Old Building

Our opening concert of the new academic year is given by one of today's outstanding violinists who first gained international recognition when, aged 12, she became the youngest-ever winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year and the youngest major prizewinner in the Menuhin International Violin Competition.

Jennifer has played with the worlds leading orchestras and conductors. Petr Limonov is in demand as soloist and accompanist and is also a conductor of the London International Chamber Orchestra.

Bacewicz Polish Caprice & Caprice no.4
Szymanowski Violin Sonata
Gorecki 'Farewell'
Karlowicz 'Impromptu'
Wieniawski Polonaise de Concert in D major

The next lunchtime concert will be on Thursday 5 October performed by Boris Bisjak (flute) and Maria Canyigueral (piano).

LSE’s Christmas Concert, which will include performances by the LSE Choir and Orchestra takes place on 5 December in the beautiful surroundings of St Clement Danes. Tickets cost £7 and will be available for purchase from the LSE online store from next month.

Just economics and politics? Think again. While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the LSE Arts and Music website.
