London Mozart Players

About London Mozart Players

Among London's many small orchestral ensembles, the London Mozart Players are perhaps the oldest and certainly among the most prestigious. The group specializes not only in the music of Mozart but also in other works of the Classical period, featuring small forces similar to those that would have played the music in its own time. The London Mozart Players were formed in 1949 by conductor and string player Harry Blech. An early digital recording appeared in 1983 and featured symphonies by Muzio Clementi. In 2021, the London Mozart Players joined the Choir of Royal Holloway, University of London, for a recording of the oratorio As We Are Changed by Carson Cooman and Euan Tait. By 2023, when the orchestra issued the world premiere recording of Hubert Parry's Scenes from Shelley's Prometheus Unbound, its recording catalog comprised well over 50 items.
