London Symphony Orchestra/Sir Simon Rattle

Sound Without Limits

Peter Moore

Sibelius, Bartók, Berlioz and Ravel – blazing colours and wild emotions, conducted with poetry and passion by Sir Simon Rattle.

Fasten your seatbelts. Berlioz’s whirlwind overture Le corsaire plunges you straight into the action, on an adventure that takes you from the ballrooms of jazz-age Paris, to Japanese gardens and vast northern landscapes. Then we hit the town with Bartók’s The Miraculous Mandarin: music from the mean streets of the 20th century, written in neon and delivered without compromise. Expect sounds to make the ears tingle, from musicians on the edge of their seats.   

It's probably safe to say that every piece that Sir Simon Rattle conducts today is one of his personal favourites. Trombonist Peter Moore, meanwhile is a true homegrown star – and at 18, he was the youngest player ever to join the LSO when he became Principal Trombone in 2014.
