Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker
The London Residency 2015

We are delighted to announce that Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker return to London for a landmark celebration at the Barbican and Southbank Centre.

Sir Simon has chosen to mark his 60th birthday with this major London residency which focuses on the music that means the most to him: a complete cycle of Sibelius symphonies in honour of the 150th anniversary of the composer's birth, Mahler's Symphony No.2 and music by Helmut Lachenmann.

The residency also includes city-wide work with school children, together with family concerts and chamber music to be announced in 2014.

Priority booking for Barbican and Southbank Centre members opens on Monday 9 December at 10am.
