Here’s what you can enjoy on day 8 of the LSO St Luke’s 10th Birthday Festival:

1pm: BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert with Nicholas Angelich

RAVEL Oiseaux tristes from ‘Miroirs’
RAVEL Valses nobles et sentimentales
MUSSORGSKY Pictures at an Exhibition

Live broadcast on BBC Radio 3 at 1pm. Listen at 90–93FM, on digital radio or on the BBC Radio 3 website

8pm: UBS Soundscapes: Eclectica – Dhafer Youssef Band

Dhafer Youssef oud
Eivind Aarset guitar
Kristjan Randalu piano
Phil Donkin bass
Chander Sardjoe drums & percussion

The oud is a pear-shaped guitar characteristic of Middle Eastern music. Its captivating sound finds an ideal exponent in Dhafer Youssef, who as a boy in Tunisia was so poor that he crafted his own instrument out of scraps, and who has gone on to dominate the world music and jazz scenes.

Tickets: £10, £15, £22 (limited seats remaining)
Book online
