      London Philharmonic Orchestra: Mehta conducts Shankar

      Zubin Mehta and the London Philharmonic Orchestra made musical history in the 1980s when they collaborated with the great sitar virtuoso Ravi Shankar on the premiere recording of Shankar’s Raga-Mala. The title means ‘a garland of ragas’ – a richly expressive, unashamedly bold attempt to find a path between two musical traditions – and tonight Mehta rejoins Shankar’s daughter (and student) Anoushka to rediscover one of the 20th century’s most unusual and beautiful masterpieces. And since Beethoven’s ‘Pastoral’ Symphony, like Shankar’s concerto, explores music’s place in nature, what better way to start a concert that celebrates the power of art to unite cultures and nourish the spirit?

      Cost: 14.00 to 65.00
