LSO String Ensemble

LSO St Lukes, the converted Hawksmooor church in Old Street just a few hundred north of the Barbican Centre, first opened its doors ten years ago. Serving as an education centre and rehearsal space for the London Symphony Orchestra, as well as a live performance venue, it has also played host to the Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert right from the start.

This week, four live broadcasts mark that anniversary, continuing today with the LSO String Ensemble, directed by the orchestra's leader Roman Simovic, in two great masterpieces of the string orchestra repertoire.
