The LMP was founded by Harry Blech and has since performed under a series of distinguished principal conductors and artistic directors, although the orchestra is now self-directed (the only orchestra of its kind in the UK). LMP has consistently performed with the best soloists in the world including Yehudi Menuhin, Jacqueline du Pré and Sir James Galway. The LMP has always given a platform to young artists and has taken great joy in the continued success of many, including Nicola Benedetti, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Martin James Bartlett, Alison Balsam and many others.
