Valery Gergiev begins his new tenure with the LSO by presenting his first series focused on Stravinsky, Debussy, Prokofiev, three of the major composers of the first half of the 20th century. Running from January through June, the series is a stimulating combination of familiar and lesser known repertoire, including several works which have never been performed before by the LSO - Prokofiev’s Seven They are Seven, Four Portraits from ‘The Gambler’, October Cantata and Stravinsky’s King of the Stars. The LSO has been the Barbican’s resident orchestra since its opening in 1982 and it has firmly established itself as one of the top five orchestras in the world.
