The London Symphony Orchestra celebrates a milestone birthday of one of the greats of the conducting world, Bernard Haitink.
Bernard Haitink is revered alike by the musicians of the orchestras he conducts and the music-lovers in the audience. In his career, spanning over 60 years, he has worked with the great ensembles and opera houses – the Concertgebouw Orchestra, Glyndebourne, the Royal Opera, the Staatskapelle Dresden and many others.
A week after his 90th birthday, the London Symphony Orchestra – with which he has a particularly special partnership – celebrates this milestone with the conductor himself. Soloist Till Fellner – who describes Haitink as 'a very noble man and musician – plays Mozart, before Haitink turns to Bruckner, a composer whose majestic symphonies have been at the centre of his career over the decades.
