LSO 2017–18 Opening Concert Live Relay

Conducted by Sir Simon Rattle

Outdoor Cinema at the Sculpture Court

Sir Simon Rattle's first concert as LSO Music Director, beamed live to our outdoor cinema screen.

This is it. A new beginning and a statement of intent. The first concert from the new Music Director of the London Symphony Orchestra.

This is Helen Grime and Thomas Adès, Oliver Knussen and Elgar. This is Sir Harrison Birtwistle and Sir Simon Rattle. This is the best of British music together.

This is starting with something new and ending with something timeless, celebrating those that came between: five generations of our best composers and two performers without peers.

This is the LSO.

This is Christian Tetzlaff.

This is Sir Simon Rattle, LSO Music Director.

Produced by Barbican
