Sir Simon Rattle: Walton 1

London Symphony Orchestra/Sir Simon Rattle

Leila Josefowicz

Sir Simon Rattle launches the London Symphony Orchestra’s 2019/20 season with an all-British programme of music, including a world premiere.

Welcome to the LSO’s 2019/20 season which, as ever, we begin with an all-British programme. We start with a world premiere by British Composer Award-winner Emily Howard, whose influences range from geometry and magnetism to the human brain and neural networks.

Leila Josefowciz takes on the role of soloist in Colin Matthews’ Violin Concerto, in which rhapsodic violin phrases soar over restless accompaniment in a swirling and impassioned dialogue. And we close with Walton’s Symphony No 1, which combines influences from Sibelius and Vaughan Williams to 1950s jazz, in a swaggering piece of 20th-century symphonic power. 
 

Duration to be confirmed closer to the event. It includes a 20 minute interval.
