The LPO has joined the disreputable list of UK orchestras that manage, somehow, to play in two venues at once. According to the Telegraph, the LPO have been chosen to serenade HM the Queen for her diamond jubilee on Sunday, June 3, under music director Vladimir Jurowski.
That same afternoon, they are supposed to be playing Janacek’s Cunning Little Vixen at Glyndebourne. Two into one won’t go? Oh, yes it will.
Maybe there’s a devilish plan afoot to recruit the banned LPO-4 to play the opera as a string quartet. All clarifications cheerfully welcomed.
